Around fifteen thousand years ago in caves in France, there was a lot of hairy men who did mad doodles of mammoths and dinosaurs. Then in 1835, a genius artist was born. He was famous for cutting his ear of and giving it to his girlfriend after being upset after falling out with his friend. Have you guessed who it is? Vincent Van Gogh of course! He was a great artist. Activities, diaries, ideas and of course ART is featured in this book. I like this book and I really enjoyed. The books in this series called The Knowledge are very good. I have read and reviewed quite a few of them. The books cover everything from football to politics.
