Simple enough for children to understand; interesting and nicely analytical though. ( )

Self-portraits of 14 artists are pictured with accompanying commentary on the artist and the painting. Not all of the artists are widely known, although famous ones are represented. Fascinating facts will appeal to readers who may be inspired to look further at the artists' other works. Deceptively simple, this book asks interesting questions and helps us look at pictures in new ways. Among the artists represented are Van Gogh, Chagall, Velazquez, and Norman Rockwell.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0822573059, Paperback)

Have you ever drawn a picture of yourself? If you have, then you know what a self-portrait is. Most artists make self-portraits as a way to practice. By drawing or painting or even photographing their own faces, they learn how to look at the world around them. And as the lucky viewers of their work, we learn what they thought about themselves. In Here's Looking at Me, Bob Raczka introduces us to fourteen famous artists who have made self-portraits. And as you'll see, they all have very different styles and settings. In fact, as you browse through this unique collection, you'll quickly discover that there is no right way or wrong way to make a picture of yourself. Only your way.
