Description:
Fine artists are paired with early learning concepts in this groundbreaking series for the toddler set. Henri Matisse's abstract cut-outs are used to teach colours in this polished read-aloud board book. Blue & Other Colours takes children through Matisse's colour palette, one artwork per page, beginning with blue and returning to it as a familiar refrain throughout.

The variance of shapes, depth, and scale will keep readers engaged, while the text enriches the reading experience with relatable and humorous commentary. Readers will not only learn their colours, but also grow familiar with fine art in this relevant and relatable first title in this series of concept books featuring the most innovative and influential artists. Includes a read-aloud "about the artist" at the end.

About the Author

Henri Matisse's (1869-1954) innovative use of colour has inspired generations of artists. His cutouts - collages made from shapes cut from painted paper in a process he described as 'painting with scissors' - have become some of the most admired works of the last century.
