Are there ugly images? Why is art so expensive? Isn't this upside down? Why is there all the fruit? This isn't finished is it? Why are there so many naked people in art? Children can ask the best questions, which makes adults look at art with new eyes. In this beautiful book, we take an art journey through time – passing hundreds of famous works of art.
Impressionism is explained on the basis of the question 'Why is everything so vague?' Abstract art is discussed with the question 'What does it represent?'. And those naked people from the title visit, among other things, ancient Greek art. Every aspect of art that is examined is made extra special by the questions that are asked and answered. ‘How do you make art scary?’ is the question at Munch’s Scream. Read the answer yourself!
Waarom zijn er zoveel blote mensen in de kunst? is the happiest imaginable introduction to the art world for young and old. An indispensable book for anyone who wants to become acquainted with art - or who thinks they already know everything, and who will have to change their opinion because of this book.
