Vincent Van Gogh- Sunflower 

How many tubes of yellow and orange paint do you think Vincent Van Gogh used to make this picture? The flowers, the vase, the table and the wall are all yellow or orange. The stems and leaves are the only thing that are not.

 

In the late summer of 1888, Van Gogh painted four pictures of sunflowers. He seemed to think that two were better than the others and only added his signature to these two. Many artist sign their finished paintings, writing their full name or just their family name. Van Gogh has signed with only his first name, Vincent. 

Year 1

Year 1 have been very busy learning about Vincent Van Gogh and used his techniques to create their own art!

Look at this painting carefully.

What do you notice?

How many people do you notice?

What are they wearing?

Notice the artist looking at us? So are the other people.

The young girl, blonde girl in the middle is princess Margareta- Teresa the daughter of the King and Queen of Spain. She is being cared for by her maids of honours whilst her parents are being painted. If you look carefully at the back you will notice the reflection in the mirror. That is the King and Queen of Spain. Diego Velazquez is the artist in the painting and he is painting the royal family.
