A book to lead readers to 13 painters from Mondrian to Munch and Kahlo to Klimt.' Sunday Times Culture Magazine;'Ruth Brown is well known for her beautifully imagined realistic images of cats and the world through which they move. Here we see her in her element as she takes a playful look at some of the world's great masterpieces... What a lovely and memorable way to be introduced to the world of art inside the classroom or out of it.' Books for Keeps;'This book is a delight to explore from start to finish. It's imaginative, expressive and immersive. There is a perfect synergy between art and text... simply sublime' Good Night To Read;'Cleverly conceived and superbly executed in her own painterly style, Ruth Brown presents a playful introduction to the work of thirteen world famous artists.
