Modern Art Explorer : Discover the stories behind famous artworks Hardback

Illustrated by Serge Bloch


Modern Art Explorer is a witty and brilliantly illustrated introduction to modern art for children that takes readers undercover to discover the stories behind thirty famous artworks from the Centre Pompidou's collection in Paris.

By going behind the scenes and turning each artwork inside out, young readers will see that artworks aren't remote monuments but real things that are shaped into being by ideas, inspirations, human lives, world events and the materials artists use. Children will be entertained and intrigued by a variety of engagingly specific details and buoyed by their ability to understand what these works of art are all about.

Award-winning illustrator Serge Bloch's cheeky, comic and energetic illustrations serve to illuminate the information and the ideas in each artwork.

The thirty featured artworks themselves represent the work of a diverse range of modern and contemporary artists from one of the world's most celebrated modern art museums.

Modern art has never seemed so exciting!
