Why Your Five Year Old Could Not Have Done That

In Why Your Five Year Old Could Not Have Done That author Susie Hodge argues passionately and persuasively in support of modern art. Hodge highlights 100 enormously artworks by different artists including Dali, Pollock, Emin, Matisse and Picasso and for each piece describes the artist's approach, process and technique, locates the work in historic and artistic context and perhaps most importantly, explains why it could not have been created by a five year old.

Product story

Why Your Five Year Old Could Not Have Done That is divided into five chapters: Objects/Toys, Expressions/Scribbles, Provocations/Tantrums, Landscapes/Playscapes and People/Monsters.

Through the 100 artworks selected, Hodge clearly explains why they should be celebrated and admired as masterpieces created using sophisticated thought and serious talent, rather than derided or dismissed. The volume also provides a comprehensive overview of modern art and is the perfect introduction to the subject.
