She wrote a separate introduction describing the life and events of every artist whose pictures she intends to show. These introductions are very well written, informative, and interesting, and read almost like short novels. For example, she tells about one great painter who had a shrewish wife who constantly harassed him, who hated his paintings, stopped him from becoming a still better painter, and turned him into a thief and a forger of other great painter's paintings. When he was dying of fever, she stayed away from him; afraid she would catch his illness. So he died alone. But later, in her old age, when admirers looked at her husband's painting, she would approach them and say, do you know who is the woman in the painting, it's me.
Then she describes the pictures she intends to show. But then the flaw appears. The kindle edition does not have the pictures. This book deserves 4 or 5 stars, but because of the flaw, I gave it just 3. I would recommend this book in paper format, if it contains the pictures. It would then be a good book for teen-agers and above, including adults.
The low rating is for the Kindle edition, not the book itself.
i enjoyed some of the write ups i read, but there is no table of contents so you can't go directly to a particular artist (it gives chapters, but you have to "guesstimate" where you'd find that location). it has a fantastic index at the back (showing artists, schools of painting, titles of painting, cities, galleries) but NO WAY to find where any of these topics are. you can search for the items (awkward & time consuming), and back to the "fatal flaw"...THERE ARE NO PICTURES!!!
Samer Hussein...since you can't understand our poor reviews, do you have a kindle e-book that HAS pictures, & if so, how do i find it???
