Item description for Tales of Stone and More by Guido Quarzo, Giovanni Anselmo, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Luciano Fabro, Pino Pascali, Alighiero e Boetti, Jannis Kounellis & Mario Merz...
This remarkably clever, endearingly sweet book for children brings to life the art of Arte Povera, telling the "Tales of Stone and More" in short passages that describe the work of artists like Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, and others who use stone, glass, wood, and fabric to create their works of art. It teaches that stones can think, that clothes thrown in a room become a rainbow, and that trees are infinitely more glorious than skyscrapers. The text and pictures will fire the imagination of readers young and old, inspiring them to think of how they can make art in their bedrooms and backyards out of things they find in their houses and neighborhoods.
Text by Guido Quarzo. 37 illustrations. 5.5 x 8 in.
