Yr12 Art Trip

Yr12 are developing work towards making a portrait inspired by a historical painting of their choice. We visited the National Gallery to look at some classic portraits from 1500s to C.19. We then visited the brand new Skarstedt Gallery in London which is showing the highly acclaimed ‘History Portraits’ by Cindy Sherman also inspired by famous artworks. Finally, we visited the National Portrait Gallery to find a last hit of inspiration for colour, composition and style. http://www.skarstedt.com/exhibitions/2016-10-01_cindy-sherman-and-david-salle-history-portraits-and-tapestry-paintings/
