Summary
What is America? Shape a fascinating image of the United States through the eyes of eighteen artists who have painted, sculpted, and photographed the U.S. landscape and culture. This latest art adventure from Bob Raczka features works from John Trumbull, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jasper Johns, and many more.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In his previous art books for children, Raczka has celebrated cultures, periods, and styles; this time his focus is on diversity in the U.S. Starting off with John Trumbull's glowing painting The Declaration of Independence, the 18 beautifully reproduced works of art in this collection cut a swath across the country including farms and cities, baseball and jazz, hard work and sacrifice, native peoples and immigrants. There's even a double-page spread of Judy Chicago's Rainbow Shabbat,  which pictures people of many races and religions celebrating together. The final comment, America is a work in progress, brings history and art together. Concise notes about each picture at the back of the book will help children and those who are reading to them find out more about the artists and their work. Great for teachers as well as children interested in art.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist"
