Synopsis

The Little Vermeer Colour and Learn with... by Catherine de Duve

We know very little about Vermeer's life. Father of a large family, he paints very few canvasses, yet his painting are very famous! Discover the trades of the time: dairywoman, lacemaker, astronomer, geographer, maid, music teacher...Colour in the gabled houses of the Delft alley where the painter lives. Meet the girl with pearl earring. Discover the musical instruments of the time and decipher the messages hidden in his paintings and colour them in Vermeer's style. 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 enjoyable interactive activities in these books.
