2003 Award
Museum ABC
(by Metropolitan Museum of Art, Little Brown $16.99 Score:) Each letter is presented with four details from great paintings in the Met's collection. While the four images are of the same subject, they show how differently artists portray apples, boats, or cats. Images come from such diverse works as Egyptian murals, Japanese woodblocks, 19th century impressionists, and 20th century pop artists. A beauty! 48.
