It's a Rubens!

We really appreciate great living textbooks to study by, and today I'm singing the praises of the Art Through Faith 8 art study book, written and published by Seton. It hosts gorgeous full color masterpieces and information of the artists and schools of painting. We are using it with our Mother of Divine Grace syllabus for art study; Modg nicely utilizes this textbook with their own study questions and further enrichment. What a wonderful art course for young people. (Please note, we are using Grade 8 of this text with our scheduled art study course).

Here's a further description right from the Seton website. Use the LINKS for more information.

Seton's Description:
A most beautiful art appreciation book from Seton Press, and one of our most popular items! Full color reproductions of Christianity's greatest religious art with insightful comments to point out religious meaning. The junior high student is introduced to the work of 78 different artists in this truly unique collection that could easily serve as a "coffee table book." You will want to buy additional copies for your friends and family. Includes such artists as:

Fra Angelico
Bellini and Botticelli
Leonardo Da Vinci
Michelangelo, Raphael and the Renaissance Painters
The Pre-Raphaelites
