How much do you know about the art that surrounds you?

There are amazing stories behind some of our best-known (and lesser-known) paintings. Some works of art are created by wacky geniuses and others by dark, tormented talents.

Some artists have become even more famous than the work they created, because of the weird and wonderful methods they used.

Where else but the art world can you find secret codes, sneaky heists, mysterious myths and even some very talented animals?

A perfect pocket money purchase for young artists! Filled with over 250 facts about art, colours, artists and lots, lots more!
