We've previously covered Catherine's amazing art books on the blog and two new contenders have appeared in our in tray, courtesy of Happy Museum.
The first - "The Little Vermeer" introduces little ones to the glorious and glowing artwork of Johannes Vermeer, a dutch painter renowned for amazing and realistic portraits and scenes.
Children can learn all about his life and works and then get busy with their own paints and colouring pencils to add new life to black and white line versions of some of Vermeer's most famous paintings including "The Milk Maid" and the well known and fabulous "The Girl with a Pearl Earring". A marvellous introduction to a true master of art.
"The Little Vermeer - Colour and Learn" and "The Little Egon Schiele" are available now from Happy Museum Publishing and are a great addition to your home or classroom book case.
