Product Description

Product Description

** GOLD AWARD WINNER, 2003 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA).**

The world's greatest classical music and fine art from the Masters converge on this one-of-a-kind educational video. Paintings come alive in time to music by Mozart and Beethoven, allowing children to experience the shapes, colors and patterns of the art and the rhythms, textures and patterns in the music.

Thoughtful connections are made between art and the real world. Live fish become Matisse's painting. Children draw a circle that morphs into a Kandinsky piece.

With its trademark combination of stunning visual effects, a world-class soundtrack, and revolutionary parent-friendly format, For the Love of Art welcomes viewers of any age to a celebration of the humanities.

DVD Extras include: Scene selction, Soundtrack play, Art only play and Animation only play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift for a New Mom Aug. 3 2006
Riveting for my kids and the most peaceful DVD for mom. This was my hands-down favorite when my kids were babies and could soothe my son's cry in an instant. An exceptional gift for a new mom, as it was for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Equally enjoyable for me too! June 19 2004
I'm thrilled when our two year old goes to the DVD cabinet, pulls this out and says, "I want Star!" Of all the DVDs in our library for our two year old, I prefer this one head and shoulders above the rest. In fact, I enjoy it myself. Unlike other childrens' DVDs, this is wonderful even if it's just playing in the background while the children play with blocks in the next room. The classical soundtrack is refreshing first thing in the morning. And the artwork! I'm glad that my child is being introduced to the beauty of Van Gogh and Picasso at a young age. It's very well done and the artworks chosen are appropriate and enjoyable for children, even including one from "Goodnight Moon", one of her favorite bedtime books. The only flaw might be that this is thirty minutes long. My two year old doesn't object to that, but when this DVD is over I find myself playing it again. I wish there was a 60 or 90 minute version for grown ups!

5.0 out of 5 stars A family favorite May 25 2004
By A Customer
Simply wonderful and different. A creative approach to learining. It "shows" the viewer how to look at art. Kid friendly but not simpering.
We love it. Bought "World Travel" too. For the Love of art is still our favorite. Can't wait to see what Baby Laureat comes up with next.

5.0 out of 5 stars The baby, cat and I all enjoy it April 20 2004
By A Customer
This is a DVD my 14 month enjoys, and I actually like to watch it too. We have almost all the Baby Einstein DVDs, which I like, but this is much more abstract. Instead of "silly" - their term - puppet shows and toys moving to music, you experience art broken down to its very basic component shapes, and your child can see how a circle is the foundation of a Van Gogh or a triange the building block of a Matisse. Many great works of art are presented for your child, and a title is provided for Mom and Dad should they not recognize the piece (which is likely at times unless you are really well versed in art). The music is not "specially performed for little ears" on synths, like Baby Einstein, but is a full orchestral performance, much better for my ears. There are also live segments with children, which my little one enjoys as much as the animated segments.
The only downside is the lack of additional features. You pretty much get the main feature or a version with just art or just animation. There is also a music section, but it simply shows the title while playing and is not very stimulating. Baby Einstein's earlier productions have "flash cards" so you can practice vocabulary and reading with baby, and I wish Baby Laureate had something similar. Still, this DVD is one of my very favorites to watch with my shorty, along with the other Baby Lareaute title, Love of World Travel. We highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING VIDEO! Highly recommend! April 14 2004
I got this from my mother-in-law and have never been so happy with a video for small children. Instead of the mind-numbing, non-educational stuff you see on the other tapes, this video is well-done, highly engaging and has wonderful, stimulating content. Good television watching habits begin with you. What are you showing your baby? Even 5 minutes of this tape is a wonderful addition to your family's home educational plan. Art, classical music, movement, colors, shapes. For the Love of Art = perfection.
