Michelangelo: Michelangelo tells you his own life story on an entertaining video that mixes art history with playful cartoon humor. From his childhood and student days in Florence to his career in Rome as a sculptor, painter and architect, his tale is a factual and fun-filled introduction to one of the most famous names of the Italian Renaissance.
Mary Cassatt: Get to know impressionist artist Mary Cassatt, famous for her tender portraits of families and children. Why didn't Mary's father want her to be an artist? What turned Mary and her friend Edgar Degas into mad scientists? What made her huge World's Fair mural so mysterious?
Andy Warhol: Pop Art icon Andy Warhol narrates the story of his life and works in this child-friendly, animated introduction to "one of the best known and most fun periods of art ever!" Covering Andy's blue-collar birth in Pittsburgh to his (much more than) 15 minutes of worldwide fame, "Warhol" also puts his art in context with modern-art contemporaries including Rauschenberg, Johns, Oldenburg and Lichtenstein.
Edgar Degas: Get to know the strong-willed banker's son who showed his work with Cassatt, Monet, and Renoir, but never considered his ballerinas, racetrack jockeys, and cabaret singers to be "Impressionist" art.
