Katie and the Bathers
Join Katie and the Bathers as five famous Pointillist paintings come alive for her in this children's art book! On a hot, sunny day, a painting of some bathers in a cool river proves too tempting for Katie, and so she dives straight into the picture! But Katie doesn't just cause a splash, she causes a flood! Paddling with new friends might be fun, but how will Katie stop the water pouring into the gallery?
A wonderful introduction and explanation of the Pointillist art style, featuring five masterpieces from three famous artists: Bathers at Asnieres by Georges Seurat, Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat, Port of Honfleur by Georges Seurat, Woman Hanging up the Washing by Camille Pissarro and Portrait of Felix Feneon by Paul Signac.
For over two decades, the Katie series by James Mayhew has been bringing art to life for young children.
James trained at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989. It's been firmly in print ever since, recognised universally as one of the best introductions to art for children. Many more Katie titles have followed and the series sells in museums and galleries all over the world, from the Met in New York, to the Uffizi in Florence, the Louvre in Paris and beyond.
