My awesome trip to Brisbane and Gold Coast! by Siobhan

Raphael Sanzio Baronci Altarpiece

Raphael was a famous Italian painter. He was born the 23rd of June 1483 Urbino, Italy. He died April the 6th 1520. His full name is Raffaello Sanzio. He painted a well known painting called Baronci Altarpiece. On the 10th of December 1500 Raphael was in his workshop painting his painting. On the 13th of September 1501 Raphael finished his painting of Baronci Altarpiece. I like how its realistic and her skin is slightly dotty. Raphael has painted over 500 paintings of people in the past. If you go to Florence, Italy you might see some of  his paintings at the Ufizzi Gallery. If you want to know more about Raphael search up Raphael Sanzio and you should find some facts and some information about him and his art.

Vincent Van Gogh


Vincent Van Gogh.

Vincent Van Gogh was a post-impressionist painter of Dutch origin whose work -notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty , and bold colour-had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art.

He born March 30 1853 and died at July 29 1890.

I like this picture because its looks so real and its colourful.

With the other Van Gogh picture’s I really like the painting called “The starry night.”.

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso is a famous artist. He was born in 1881 and died in 1973. He painted lots of pictures, like El Bobo which was painted in 1959 in Spain.

Pablo Picasso. El Bobo.
Picasso started a new technique, cubism. Cubism is when you paint different parts of an object separately and puts them back together. For example Marie Therese Walter was painted using cubism (shown below).
Marie-Therese Walter
My favourite painting by Picasso is El Bobo (shown at top) because he looks hilarious and weird and Pablo did use cubism in it.Pablo’s mum says Picasso’s first words were “piz, piz”, which is short for lapiz and Spanish for ‘pencil’. If you want to see more Pablo paintings, google Self portrait, Old guitarist, Three musicians, Still life with guitar, Mary Therese Walter, and The doves. You might think his paintings are weird and ugly. Well, they are close to the most expensive things in the world! If you want to make your own Picasso-based painting visit
