Alison Baverstock is an Associate Professor of Humanities at Kingston University, London as well as a hugely experience publisher, writer and trainer in all areas of publishing.

A lively and insightful introduction to a wide range of British artists whose work spans nearly four centuries, 13 British Artists Children Should Know takes a playful and imaginative approach to learning that will inspire children’s curiosity and creativity.

This fantastic book allows children to explore the rich history of British art from William Blake’s visionary and Romantic paintings to the earthy ingenuity of Antony Gormley’s sculpture via the fantastical world of Leonora Carrington’s work and the cheeky comedy of Beryl Cook’s work.

This colourful compendium takes children through this vast array of work chronologically with games, puzzles and project ideas along the way to encourage young readers to appreciate the diversity of British culture. Religious art, urban art, landscape and fantasy are presented in beautiful full-page spreads that engage the reader and challenge them to consider questions of the artists’ perceptions as well as teaching children about the historical context surrounding the work, making this an interactive and edifying learning experience.
