Taking a Look at Eric Carle’s Latest Book

“I am an artist…” is the powerful opening of the latest addition to Eric Carle’s wonderful library of new books, ‘The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse’. This beautiful children’s book tells of a child who pushes the boundaries of his imagination through art, but it is also semi-autobiographical of Carle himself.

Eric Carle's The Artist Who Painted a Blue HorseEric Carle describes the book as “an homage to the Expressionist painter Franz Marc.” Carle lived under Nazi rule in Germany until he was fifteen, but a teacher of his saw the artistic spirit in the young man and introduced him to art that was at the time forbidden. The author explains on his website www.eric-carle.com, “In WW11 Germany, my high school teacher Herr Krauss introduced me to abstract and Expressionist art during a time when works such as these had been banned. The so-called ‘degenerate art,’ paintings of modern and expressionistic art my teacher showed me were unlike anything I had been exposed to before. And really this experience changed my life, though I didn’t know it at the time.”

 

Franz Marc's Blue Horse

Franz Marc’s Blue Horse

“I am an artist and I paint a blue horse.” This rather innocuous opening statement gains meaning as the narrative continues. The story shows image after image of animals not looking quite like how they should. There is a blue horse, a red crocodile, an orange elephant, a purple fox, a black polar bear and a polka-dotted donkey. Besides these being some of the most beautiful and imaginative creations in Carle’s illustrious career, they are also teaching a lesson about not putting limits on creativity and imagination. Or as Eric Carle puts it, “Never color inside the lines.” The book serves as a gorgeous example of what can happen when creativity and imagination are allowed to run wild.

The personal connection between Carle and the book are what makes it resonate in such a true and powerful way. Growing up in one of the most historically repressed times in Germany’s history, he was still able to discover art and creativity that was frowned upon by his society and government. Carle’s lesson about unchecked creativity becomes so much more important when put into the context of what the artist experienced as a young man.

Here is a lovely video of Eric Carle discussing the making of ‘The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse':

How Eric Carle Makes His Beautiful Art

Author and artist Eric Carle

Eric Carle’s books like The Very Hungry Caterpillar are linked in the minds of his faithful readers with his very distinctive and beautiful art. But how does he make the art and with what materials? We take a look at his process for making the images in the books and show you how you can do it, too!

Carle credits his influences for his style as ranging from Picasso, Matisse, Leo Lionni, and Ezra Jack Keats. His pictures are actually collages and not paintings. On his website at www.eric-carle.com, the artist says of his process, “I begin with plain tissue paper and paint it with different colors, using acrylics. Sometimes I paint with a wide brush, sometimes with a narrow brush. Sometimes my strokes are straight, and sometimes they’re wavy. Sometimes I paint with my fingers. Or I paint on a piece of carpet, sponge, or burlap and then use that like a stamp on my tissue papers to create different textures.” That’s a fascinating way to go about making a collage, by preparing lots of different surfaces to work with!

Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar

But what does he do with all of this paper? Eric Carle continues, “These papers are my palette and after they have dried I store them in color-coded drawers. Let’s say I want to create a caterpillar: I cut out a circle for the head from a red tissue paper and many ovals for the body from green tissue papers; and then I paste them with wallpaper glue onto an illustration board to make the picture.” Wouldn’t you love to look through all of those drawers of prepared papers?

Do you feel like running out to your local arts and crafts store to make your own collage, or do one with the kids? Carle says, “You might want to try it. It’s messy, but fun.” The artist has also created a handy instruction sheet on how to make a hungry caterpillar at http://www.eric-carle.com/EricCarleCollageMakingInstructionSheet.pdf. Be sure to share your own Eric Carle-inspired art with us! We’d love to see it!
