The objective of this series of four books is to invite children to view, understand, and enjoy the many works of art created by Hispanic artists throughout history.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
Art has represented a constant research and enjoyment in my life. I have profound memories of me walking the corridors of the exhibit hall at the Diputación de Alicante as early as when I was ten years old. First taken by the hand of my father, a great intellectual that opened my eyes to the beauty of aesthetics and literature. Those encounters with mostly Spanish painters would remain with me forever. Later in my life I would walk the museums of the world delighting in the worlds that images brought to my eyes.
I have even attempted painting and sculpting. The walls of my friend’s homes around the world, keep that secret within the houses of generous people.
