Using resources of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Philip Yenawine helps to demystify art for young children. Lines, Colors, People, and Places introduce the components of painting and sculpture and excite children's interest in art. These books provide the basis for a child's first visits to museums, and they will help children look at art in the world around them.

Notes at the back of each book provide brief background information that adults will find useful when talking with children about the paintings and sculptures reproduced in these books.

The places that inhabit this book are from cities and from the country, places for work and play, places familiar and exotic. Included are paintings, drawings, and photographs by such artist as Thomas Hart Benton, Pierre Bonnard, Edward Hopper, Berenice Abbott, and Piet Mondrian.
