A Hopi figure of Kachina

5th May 1995 at 01:00
(Photograph) - A Hopi figure of Kachina, from southwest Arizona made from cottonwood in about 1900, an illustration from Key Art Terms for Beginners, an accessible volume designed to guide novices around art terminology. Philip Yenawine's handy book successfully demystifies the often intimidating language of art.

The reader learns the value of making comparisons between works of art and is encouraged to ask the overarching question: "Why do people make art?" With approximately 145 illustrations to back up the text, this is a thoroughly enjoyable book (Abrams Pounds 17.95. 0 8109 1225 2).
