Additional Information

Item details
This book is from a multi-award winning illustrator Bruce Ingman and is a charming story and a lesson in history.

Inspired by the life of the founder of the now famous Tate art galleries, Henry Tate is a sweet tale about one man’s passion for making art available to as many people as possible. We follow the story of Henry Tate on his journey from green grocer to philanthropist who, before the turn of the twentieth century, made the pioneering move to share his entire collection of paintings with the British public.

Incorporating illustrations of artworks from Tate’s ever-evolving collection, award-winning illustrator and author Bruce Ingman brings to life one of Britain’s lesser- known historical figures. The book is a delightful celebration of a legacy far greater than Henry Tate himself ever could have imagined.

Bruce Ingman studied Illustration at the Royal College of Art. He has been writing and illustrating children’s books for nearly twenty years. His first book, When Martha’s Away, won the Mother Goose Award and the V&A Illustration Award. Many more critically acclaimed books have followed, including collaborations with renowned authors Sean Taylor and Allan Alhberg.

Suitable for ages 5+
