Years 5 and 6 Klimt-style portraits

Leave a comment


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?
