J. Paul Getty Museum,
Pub. Date:
A life-size portrait of the famous rhinoceros named Clara is the massive centerpiece of the J. Paul Getty Museum's exhibition Oudry's Painted Menagerie. In her honor, the Getty has produced My Travels with Clara, a book for children that tells the true story of this five-thousand-pound animal and her owner, an eighteenth-century Dutch sea captain. My Travels with Clara begins in India, where Clara was born, and follows this amazing animal and her owner through their exploits in Berlin (where she met Frederick the Great), Paris (where she was a sensation and inspired rhinoceros hairdos), Versailles (where she met Louis XV and had her portrait painted), Rome (where she lost her horn), and finally Venice (where Clara joined in the annual Carnival). A delightful story for children ages eight and up.
