Dropping in on Renaissance Artists

( 20:28 )

Join Puffer in Florence, Italy, the birthplace of the Renaissance. A young art student name Polly helps him learn about Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Raphael. Animated biographical sequences are combined with details and full-screen images of actual masterworks, including The Pietà, Sistine Chapel, Mona Lisa, St. George and the Dragon, and more. The dialog will help viewers of all ages to make their own interpretations of the works of art. The DVD is accompanied by a guide with discussion questions and related art activities. Also available in this ever-expanding series are Impressionists, Romare Bearden, Andy Warhol, Rousseau, Picasso, Grant Wood, Grandma Moses, and Matisse. Companion books are also available. Written by Pam Stephens. Animated by Jim McNeill
