"Rene Magritte usually made his paintings a little difficult to understand. He did this on purpose because he wanted people to think about the mysteries of his pictures."
This biography introduces Rene Magritte in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Magritte, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 4 and up.
