Synopsis

Renoir's Colors by Marie Selier

This book helps children identify and explore colours through eight child-friendly paintings by the great Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Its engaging interactive format invites the reader to open a flap and see a beautiful colour detail of one of Renoir's works and then to turn the page to see the full painting from which the detail is drawn. Young readers will learn that each colour exists in a variety of shades. Yellow can be the colour of a man's straw hat or the light of summer shining through the trees. Blue can be bright like the stripes in a woman's dress or rich and deep like a man's suit or dark like the shadows that dance on the ground. This charming book will offer children a wonderful first experience with art, encouraging them to look closely at visual images as well as to see the variety of colours in the world around them.
