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.
