When young Dan finds himself locked inside a museum after closing hours, he discovers a world of art he'd never dreamed possible. An angel steps out of a painting and takes him on an exploratory tour of the great masterpieces - explaining the symbolism of each painting. This is a great book to start exploring art and artistic concepts with children. It also has illustrations from the brilliant Children's Laureate Lauren Child Dan's Angel.
