Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, and Guernica, a portrayal of the Bombing of Guernica by the German and Italian airforces at the behest of the Spanish nationalist government during the Spanish Civil War. Picasso, Henri Matisse and Marcel Duchamp are regarded as the three artists who most defined the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics. Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a naturalistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas. His work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period, the Rose Period, the African-influenced Period, Analytic Cubism, and Synthetic Cubism, also referred to as the Crystal period....

Children go on an exciting journey through the world of art by looking for details in famous paintings. The app includes 15 paintings, all from the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Works by Renoir, Monet, Manet, Pissarro, Cezanne, Brueghel, van Gogh, Canaletto, van Huysum and more.

100 hidden details require children to look at art in a new way - very close! Can you find a parasol? Do you see two wheat stacks? This app is suitable even for young children who are not confident readers as the questions are read out to you - all you need to do is look carefully and click on the detail once found. There is also an option to read the questions alone and play it without any sound.

The app offers no in-app purchases, it displays no adds, and will not connect to any social media sites. It is self contained and does not require internet connection to run, making it a very safe environment for children to explore.

​The game will inspire the children of all ages, whether playing the game on their own or with their parents.

NOTE: I am not affiliated with the J.Paul Getty Museum in any way. I am a private developer and have only used the paintings from their collection that are free from copyright.
