Meet the cool creatives behind awe-inspiring art, with this non-fiction book for kids. Pour paint onto a canvas with Jackson Pollock, laugh along with the pranks of Hokusai, and find beauty in your self-portrait with Frida Kahlo, as you follow the stories of more than 50 fabulous artists and their groundbreaking work.
Through charming storytelling rich in detail, Artists covers celebrated figures as well as lesser-known trailblazers, each with a tale as intriguing as it is unique. From cat connoisseur Louis Wain and pattern fanatic Yayoi Kusama, to eye-obsessed Margaret Keane, who won a court paint-off to prove her husband had passed off her work as his own - the artists in this book have all used their creativity and complexity to make powerful art that has enriched and inspired the lives of many. These groundbreaking pieces range from those whose beauty keeps you coming back for more, to some that might change your worldview. Beautiful descriptions of the artists' lives are brought to life through stunning watercolour illustrations by Jessamy Hawke and fantastic photography highlights the detail of their work.
