Description

By Lee Bennett Hopkins

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen." - Leonardo da Vinci

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 of Art, which presents over 5,000 years of art from every corner of the world. The collection represents a wide range of poets and artists, including acclaimed children's poets Marilyn Singer, Alma Flor Alda, and Carole Boston Weatherford and popular artists such as Mary Cassatt, Fernando Botero, Winslow Homer, and Utagawa Hiroshige.

Accompanying the artwork and specially commissioned poems is an introduction, biographies of each poet and artist, and an index.

Lee Bennett Hopkins is an award-winning author and poet who has published more than 100 books of poetry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Art and Poetry, True Form I bought this book as a gift, but actually read the poetry with the matching picture of great art. It was absolutely wonderful. I couldn’t put it down, loved it!
