Artist and writer Miriam Elia has created a comical children's book called 'We Go to the Gallery', which is available on the Learning with Miriam website. This fantastic book is about a mother who takes her children to a modern art gallery. Elia uses this book to mock the pretentious attitudes that are often associated with modern art critics.
The illustrations in this children's book are interesting because they blend traditional and modern elements. The family visiting the gallery looks prim and proper, and the artworks are modern and unusual.
In this modern art mocking book the children ask questions about art and make observations, while their mother provides them with pretentious insight into the world of art, and the meaning behind it. Art fans will get a kick out of this humorous kids book.
