Synopsis

Maria Paints the Hills by Pata Mora, Maria Hesch

Ages 4 years & over. To frame the narrative paintings of the late folk artist Maria Hesch, poet Mora has invented a simple story of a child in New Mexico: her daily life with her working-class mother and her imaginative play. Mora's plain words are eloquent, but the story does little more than say what the child sees. It's the pictures that are the focus here. Hesch's folk narratives have adult as well as child appeal, and the high-quality reproductions capture the warm interiors of the child's home and the New Mexican landscape through the seasons. Art classes will want this.
