‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Anne Guéry and Olivier Dussutour
Age Range: 6-8
Alphab’art by French authors Anne Guéry and Olivier Dussutour is an enjoyable way for children to learn about some of the masters of western art. One letter of the alphabet is concealed in each of the 26 paintings reproduced in this book by artists including Picasso, Dali, Van Gogh, Matisse, Giotto, Chagall, Hopper, Kandinsky, Klee, Bosch, Piero Della Francesca and Miro.
Children will learn how to read the detail of the paintings and how to understand them as they search each canvas for the letters of the alphabet. They will uncover a wealth of amazing information about some of the most beautiful, bold, innovative and exciting paintings in the history of art.
At the back of the book there are pages showing where the letter of the alphabet is located in the picture together with a paragraph about each of the paintings and how they were painted. A perfect introduction to the world of art.
