Here are some paintings illutrating spring :
The one I decided to start with was not painted by an English, American or any other English-speaking painter... yet, it is maybe the most famous allegory of the spring season in the world : can you recognise it ?
"La Primavera" by Sandro Botticelli
This one was painted by another Italian painter whose style is completely different and also famous nowadays :
"Primavera" by Arcimboldo
The painting below was painted by a Welsh painter :
"Spring" by Christopher Williams
If you look attentively at the painting below and analyse its style... I think you might guess who painted it :
it is "Fishing in Spring" by Vincent Van Gogh
"Early Spring" :
was finished in 1072 by Guo Xi
This one looks like a photograph but is also painting : its author was American, and you know him since you've studied some of his paintings this year... its title is "Spring Flowers" and it was painted...
... YES ! By Norman Rockwell :-)
Below, a much 'cheaper' and modern version of other spring flowers :
"Spring green" is manufactured and sold by ElleWeiDeco -though it's not "great" art, but rather a decorating product... I like it :)
Now practise : present each illustration, then describe it in detail. You can use the recap sheets that include locating prepositions and phrases and show how to locate people/things on a picture.
As a conclusion, tell which picture you like best and explain why.
