From AudioFile
This 1965 publication won a Newbery Medal and top awards in England and France. De Trevino's masterpiece is enhanced by Ward's glorious narration. The colorful text is presented so artistically that simply listening to all of the different voices and accents is a great pleasure. Juan is an African slave who assists Spanish painter Vel‡zquez and himself becomes an accomplished artist in spite of the prohibition against a slave learning to paint. The diverse European accents, as well as Juan's African speech patterns as a child and an adult, are masterfully recreated. The book closes very interestingly with de Trevino explaining the art of creating a biography. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

Reviewed with Mike Venezia's Winslow Homer.Gr. 1-3. These two titles in Venezia's long-running Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists series offer biographical information as well as some basic art history. In Diego Velazquez, for instance, children will learn that seventeenth-century patrons often relied on portraits to "show off [their] power and wealth," a fact that may help them better appreciate the lavish attire and glittery jewels on display in many of the artist's major works. Winslow Homer puts the engraver turned painter in context of the nineteenth-century art scene, contrasting his rustic, naturalistic style with the mannered classicism preferred by other painters of the day. The absence of a glossary and an index in the books may frustrate report writers, and statements such as...

Book Description
Acclaimed for its blending of realism with atmosphere and for its deeply sensitive appreciation of character, the work of Velázquez (1599-1660) represents the undeniable pinnacle of the golden age of Spanish painting. His empathetic studies of the great and the grotesque remain seminal works, all surveyed in this richly illustrated Spanish-language entry in the Basic Art series that also shows his enormous influence on later artists including Picasso and Francis Bacon.
