Colours in Art by Lucy Micklethwait


Colours in Art by Lucy Micklethwait

A selection of fine art paintings from artists worldwide and throughout history, combined with a simple 'I Spy' game of spotting colours. A fun way to introduce children to fine art through concept-based play. I spy with my little eye...a red key a black cat a yellow sun Each magnificent painting in this book has a different coloured object for you to look for - some are easy, but some are difficult. And when you have found them all, there are lots of other interesting things to spot. Lucy Micklethwait has selected a wonderful range of fine art by painters including Magritte, Van Gogh, Miro and Chagall. With a gloriously reproduced piece of art on each spread, this title is the ultimate picture-puzzle challenge for children, making art accessible and fun.


'Micklethwait's choice may be unorthodox but it makes sense (and allows parents the option of showing off: Little Pablo just adores Joaquin Torres-Garcia's Form, Structure and Objects ).'
