The Little Lowry The Much Loved British Painter by Catherine de Duve

Laurence Stephen Lowry was an English artist. He liked to draw industrial life as he sees it, and even a bit more. He liked to tell stories of life as a tale. We call him the 'poet of the English industrial landscape'. Is it why he became such a loved British painter? Discover Lowry's passions; his urban industrial scenes, his lonely crowds, his matchstick figures, his landscapes and the seaside and yachts. Happy Museum is a series of short, interactive books for juniors from 4 to 14 years of age! Its purpose is to spread the enjoyment of art and to inspire, turning family trips to the museum or art gallery into a fun experience through the creative, educational and most importantly enjoyable interactive activities in our books. Games, drawings, tips and thoughts bring our colourful 32 page, richly illustrated books to life. With reading levels to suit all ages, young and old can discover new work and will be captivated as they explore the lives and masterpieces of the greatest artists in the world.
