Featuring a diverse range of modern artists and their works, Modern Art Explorer takes young readers on an undercover adventure to discover the stories behind famous works.

Witty and brilliantly illustrated, Modern Art Explorer is an approachable introduction to modern art for children. Featuring Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and many more, this book brings readers the stories behind thirty famous artworks. Young readers will see art as something real, something born out of ideas, inspiration, human lives, world events, and the materials artists use.

Modern Art Explorer goes undercover and turns each work of art inside out, providing children with an ability to understand what each piece is all about. Buoyed by award-winning illustrator Serge Bloch’s cheeky and energetic illustrations, this book prompts children to think about how art comes into being and to take a deeper look at the ideas within each work.

Written with a fresh and current voice, this book is a fun and illuminating guide to modern art for children.

Alice Harman is an author and editor from Brighton, UK, who has written over twenty nonfiction titles for children, including concept creation for the award-winning book Why Is Art Full of Naked People?

Serge Bloch is an internationally renowned illustrator and author from France who has contributed to over one hundred books for children and was previously the art director at Bayard Jeunesse. He is the winner of multiple awards, including the Society of Illustrators’ Gold Medal and the Bologna Ragazzi Award for Nonfiction.
