Big Bug

Henry Cole. S. & S./Little Simon.

PreS-Gr 2–Beginning with a giant-size ladybug, Cole’s color-saturated paintings gradually pull back, revealing that the huge insect looks little perched on a large leaf, which seems tiny next to a flower, and so on, until the “Big…BIG sky” makes everything small. An elucidating and imagination-expanding exploration of scale and perspective.
