"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen." --Leonardo da Vinci
From the publisher-
Based on this simple statement by Leonardo, 18 poets have written new poems inspired by some of the most popular works in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum.
Wow! This book is going to keep us busy for a couple weeks and has inspired my 12yo to want to go see these works in person someday. I'd love to see a sequel based on the Art Institute of Chicago! This is just a beautiful book and children from the ages of five upwards will enjoy it. Homeschoolers of the Charlotte Mason variety will I think, especially love the art included in this tome.
