Overview

In Art: Hats by Mrs. Catherine McGrew Jaime

One of the original books in the "Enjoying Great Art" series, but now bigger and better:

Hats - ordinary things we see every day...But are they always ordinary?

Here is a picture book for students of all ages...A picture book of hats and other head coverings! Different styles, colors, shapes, and sizes...Some worn by men, some by women, and some by children...Many representing status or station in life...Some that look like they are just being worn for the fun of it.

Look through the paintings that span many centuries and come from different parts of the globe. Notice the similarities and the differences...See the colors, the textures and patterns. Observe whether the hats seem to be a primary focus of the painting, or merely a smaller, insignificant portion.

But, most of all, enjoy!

About the Author

Catherine's appreciation for "Great Art" started slowly. Beginning with a love of all things Leonardo da Vinci, in recent years she branched out to Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, and Norman Rockwell. And there her love of art sat for many years. Only in the last few years has she come to recognize and enjoy the works of many other artists, and in the process has fallen in love with many of their paintings, both well-known and not so well-known.
This series started simply: a few books to introduce children to art and artists they might not have known - all arranged along a single theme (first hats, then with animals, then bridges, and so it went). Before long she had multiplied her efforts and her books, all the while introducing not just her students, but also many adults to the vast array of artwork that so many of us sadly neglect.
