Description

"Like a cinematographer, Say, in perhaps his best work to date, pays tribute to a bygone era with a brief slice-of-life story about a boy's encounter with a sing painter. . . . . Say subtly and ingeniously blends a feeling of nostalgia with a hard-hitting immediacy. . . . The images and the boy's passion as an artist will remain with [readers]." --Publishers Weekly, starred review Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Studying say's technique could inspire any aspiring painter." --Horn Book (9-10/00) Horn Book

"In a tribute to many modern artists, includijng Hopper, Warhol, and Magritte, Say shows and tells how their pictures make you feel and how the surreal is part of a young man's search for himself." --Booklist (19/01/00 Booklist, ALA
