Who is the Artist? Dufy, Gauguin, Matisse and Who is the Artist? Lichtenstein, Thiebaud, Warhol.

Who Is the Artist? Dufy, Gauguin, Matisse and Who Is the Artist? Lichtenstein, Thiebaud, Warhof. Kay Alexander, Glenview, IL: Crystal Productions (800-255-8629), 2003. VHS format. 25 minutes. $29.95 each.

Each of these two videos introduces twenty-four masterworks of three prominent artists. After viewers are introduced to each of the artists' works, including many details of each, they are shown other works by the same artists and asked to identify "who is the artist?" The focus is on recognizing styles and techniques and the subject matter that dominates each artist's work.

Highly recommended for ages nine and up, these videos are inquiry-based and ask viewers to interact with the images as they are presented.
