The Art Puzzle Book

by Susie Hodge and Dr. Gareth Moore - £14.99  White Lion Publishing (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780711248168 | ISBN 10: 0711248168

THINK YOU KNOW BOSCH FROM BOTTICELLI? MONDRIAN FROM MIRO? THINK AGAIN...
 
The Art Puzzle Book turns art history on its head by testing your brainpower and perception on some the world's most iconic paintings. Journey from ancient Egypt to 1980s New York solving riddles, discovering hidden secrets and challenging your general knowledge.
 
Esteemed art historian Susie Hodge and leading brain trainer Dr Gareth Moore introduce you to 36 iconic pieces of art – including Botticelli's Primavera, Van Gogh's The Starry Night and Picasso's Guernica. For each painting, they reveal fascinating facts about the work and artist (and give clues on what to look for), before challenging you to decipher the art for yourself through carefully crafted questions. Look at art in new ways as you:
 
Decode the hieroglyphs from the Book of the Dead
Find new symbols in The Arnolfini Portrait
Solve riddles based on The Garden of Earthly Delights
Navigate M.C. Escher's gravity-defying staircases
Reassemble the Mondrian
 
With over 300 questions, The Art Puzzle Book is designed to entertain and perplex, whether you're an art novice or an art connoisseur.
