Alexander Sturgis is an education officer at the National Gallery, London. He is also The Great Xar, a magician performing at the National Gallery and on television. His television appearances include The Big Breakfast, The Word and Tricks & Tracks, as well as introducing paintings to children on the BBC's programme Hartbeat. He lives in London.
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.
