Years 5 and 6 studied Gustav Klimt’s portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer last term. She was a Jewish friend of the artist from Vienna. During World War 2, the portrait was seized by the Nazis and renamed ‘ The Woman in Gold’.
Having carefully observed Klimt’s painting the children then created their own pictures of a woman standing amongst shapes of different patterns. At first, they used only monochrome, then introduced gold and finally splashes of colour. Aren’t they colourful?
