Great Book of Animal Portraits

Animal Portraits: A Humorous Twist on Famous Masterpieces

Introduce children to the world of classic art with the “Great Book of Animal Portraits.” This unique atlas features famous portraits from major museums and art galleries around the world, from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century. But what makes this book stand out is how artist Svjetlan cleverly replaces the portraits with animals, while perfectly maintaining the original posture, clothing, color, and atmosphere of each painting. Not only that, but the book also adds a lighthearted and humorous touch to each interpretation. With this one-of-a-kind picture book, children can learn and appreciate classic art in a fun and engaging way.
