Young People's Story of Art

Excerpt from Young People's Story of Art "Picture study," a wise man has well said, "is one of the most powerful methods of instruction known." And in this book, young people will find illustrated short stories about Architecture, Sculpture, and Painting. But you ask: "Shall we learn which are the most wonderful buildings, the most famous statues, and the best pictures?" That question we may not answer conclusively, for even the most competent critics cannot agree. Nevertheless, through picture study all may become familiar with the masterpieces into which the men of genius have embodied their beautiful thoughts; learn to recognise what is really great in art; and decide what we most enjoy. Hence, we will begin our art story, by taking a brief glimpse at the massive stone monuments of ancient Egypt, climbing the "Storied Hill" of Greece, and wandering among the ruins of Rome. Then, at the coming of the Christ-Child, we will see the temple give way before the church, the heathen god before the Christian saint; and we will glance at the pictures of different masters who have revealed to us their ideals of the Madonna and Child.
