The children look. 20 artists illustrate.

Children’s book illustration exhibition developing the theme of renovation in illustration.

Illustrators’ art works play a major role in children’s books. The artists listen to the texts, create new versions, direct the reader’s view and cultivate the child’s aesthetics. They use their art to contribute to visual literacy, to the understanding and the decoding of messages. Twenty talented and daring illustrators illuminate today’s books displaying before our eyes the incomparable wealth of this extremely demanding artistic creation.
