Artist Who Painted a Bue Horse (Hardcover) -GERMAN
Carle, Eric

Ein Kind beginnt, zu malen: ein blaues Pferd, eine gelbe Kuh, einen schwarzen Eisbären und andere ganz besondere Tiere. So entstehen wunderbare Kunstwerke voller Energie und Leuchtkraft. In seinem neuesten Bilderbuch lädt Eric Carle alle dazu ein, auf die eigene Kreativität zu vertrauen. Dem eigenen Schaffen freien Raum lassen ohne einengende Regeln - diesem Grundsatz ist Eric Carle selbst über Jahrzehnte hinweg in seiner Bilderbuchkunst treu geblieben. Den Grundstein für diese Überzeugung legte sein Zeichenlehrer, der ihm Kunstwerke des Expressionismus zeigte. Besonders tiefen Eindruck hinterließen die Bilder von Franz Marc. Dieses Buch ist eine Hommage an ihn.

A brilliant new Eric Carle picture book for the artist in us all
