Melissa Sweet (@melissasweetillustrator) is the illustrator of many eeBoo favorites including the Learn to Draw with Melissa Sweet Art Book. Melissa lives in Maine where the natural world is a big part of the landscape and inspires many of her illustrations. Her favorite color is fuchsia and every other shade of pink, too! Melissa loves to go to her local farmer’s markets because her current yard is only big enough for two dogs to run around so her gardening is limited to potted plants.
A charming, chunky book filled with more than 150 works we love from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Accompanying text provides readers with insight into each piece without distracting from the beauty of the work. From paintings to collages to sculptures to photographs, I (Heart) Art helps readers discover the best that the museum has to offer. Among the artists included are Jennifer Bartlett, Romare Bearden, Rosa Bonheur, Canaletto, Mary Cassatt, Marc Chagall, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Hokusai, Winslow Homer, Edmonia Lewis, Claude Monet, Georgia O’Keeffe, Alfred Stieglitz, and Andy Warhol.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest museum in the Western Hemisphere and the world’s most encyclopedic art museum.
