Babar's Museum of Art


Also available in store.

Everyone who loves art, Babar, or children will love Babar's Museum of Art. The old train station in Celesteville stands empty should it be torn down "No!" declare Celeste and Babar, who decide to turn it into an art museum. Their children (like many young museum-goers) have a lot of questions about art: "Does it have to be pretty Does it have to be old Does it have to make sense" Celeste's patient answers explain the basic ideas of art appreciation. Babar and Celeste's generous donations to the newmuseum include witty and striking elephant-inspired versions of Michelangelo's Creation of Man, Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, and Sandro Botticelli's Birth of Venus, along with many other celebrated paintings.
