I think this book would be great for lower elementary students. This book walks you through the life of Horace and the impact that art had on him through his time in the army, coming back from being wounded at war, to becoming an artist to hang his work around the city. This informational text brings to life the story of someone through not only words but pictures and personal notes. ( )

Author Jen Bryant and illustrator Melissa Sweet, who also collaborated on the picture-book biographies The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus and A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams, return to the form in this wonderful examination of the life of African-American artist Horace Pippin. Born on Washington's birthday - January 22nd - in 1888, in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Pippin discovered his love for making pictures at an early age, winning an art contest when he was eight. Whatever else he was doing - and he had to work many different kinds of jobs, to help his family - he was always making art. Injured while serving in World War I - he was awarded the French Croix de Guerre and the Purple Heart - he returned home with a right arm that was almost useless. Slowly, through hard work and determination, he trained himself to use this arm again, continuing to make his paintings. Eventually, his work was discovered and promoted by such figures as painter N.C. Wyeth, and he went on to become a well-known painter...

I am so very glad that I picked up A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin, as I had not previously heard of this artist, but will now seek out more of his work. His life story is certainly inspirational, as he battled all sorts of disadvantages and challenges - poverty, racial discrimination, the physical and psychological wounds of war - in order to go on making his art. I would certainly like to know more about him, and about his work. Jen Bryant's text here is simple but informative, and is paired with Sweet's appealing, mixed-media artwork, which incorporates quotations from Pippin himself. The back matter contains more information about Pippin, as well as notes from the author and illustrator, and lists of further reading ideas and other online resources. I was interested to see, from the notes, that Bryant and Sweet worked together on this, while doing their research, as this is quite atypical in contemporary American picture-book production, where the author and artist often times have no communication. This collaborative method certainly has produced a wonderful result here! Recommended to young art lovers, and to picture-book readers looking for stories about artists, about people overcoming challenges, or about veterans and their post-war experiences. ( )

Horace Pippin loved to draw from a a very young age. He had very large hands for a young boy and he helped out his family where he could. His family went through many hardships, his mother was once a slave in Virginia, his father left them when he was only in 8th grade, and they struggled financially. Horace was always drawing, even when he took on any job he could to help the family. Wherever he went people knew he could draw and he would draw pictures for them at their request. Eventually, Horace went to war and joined the army. He was injured while at war and his arm was badly damaged. Horace could no longer draw. Eventually, with determination and control, Horace used a hot iron poker to gain strength in his arm again which would help him draw again. A famous painter saw Horace's paintings and told him his work needed to be seen, he needed to have an art show. To this day Horace's paintings hang in galleries and museums.

This picture book biography would do well in a unit discussing art, famous people with disabilities, what those who work hard can accomplish/that nothing comes easy, what people can do with a bit of effort and determination. This could help students focus on their strengths to improve them, and even their tougher subjects to help them see that with effort they can do what they set their mind to. Students could paint or draw their own art and focus on things they see everyday or events that have impacted their lives much like Horace. ( )

Horace Pippin was an African American boy who loved art, but he was also a hard worker to help out his family. If Horace wasn't working, he found time to draw with coal. Horace was always asked to draw and each time he would do so, but one day a big war had begun and Horace went to help. During the war Horace still found time to draw, but one day he came out of hiding and was struck in the shoulder with a bullet, Horace was unable to draw again. Horace got married and then later taught himself how to draw with the help from his other hand. Later Horace was hired by a local artists' club and he had a one-man exhibition where people from all over came to see his paintings. He became famous for his paintings. I really loved this book, the message I got from the book was to never give up on something you love just because you think its impossible. There will always be a way, even if it might not be the way we once thought was right or best. ( )
