Four Winter Stallions,4x4300

Dahlov was born in Windsor, Vermont on November 12, 1917. Dahlov is currently alive and lives in the Georgetown, Maine. She has an interest in printmaking, and does mostly painting. In the Farnsworth Museum Dahlov has two paintings. The paintings are A Walk On The Wild Side and Bull Of Dreams. Dahlov likes to paint farm and jungle animals. Ever since she was little she liked to paint animals.

I like that Dahlov paints animals and mostly I like her farm paintings. The painting I like the most is Four Winter Stallions. She inspires me because I like all the color she uses and that she does a lot with horses. I also like that she makes her paintings look real. I would like to do screen printing as my project for her. I think that I might put a story in the screen printing that I am going to do. The screen printing of a unicorn with the story in its body is what inspires me to do this. I am going to use a stencil and a roller or squeggie to screen print .My screen printing will have lots of realistic colors.

Claes Oldenberg by: Jillian Page

Clothes pin, 1976
Sponge bridge and cherry, 1985-1988

Claes Oldenberg was born in Stockholm, Sweden on January 28, 1929 and is currently alive. Claes makes larger then life sculptures from paint, steel, and clay, and his style of art is Pop Art. Oldenberg’s art is similar to Andy Warhol, and Jim Dine's artwork. Claes studied art at the Yale University.

Claes inspired me with his large sculptures and it seemed so interesting to make big sculptures like Claes did. The piece of art by Claes that inspires my project is the large spoon with a cherry on it. I decided to make a sculpture and the materials that I will be using for my sculpture will be mostly clay and paint. My sculpture will be of a cat because I enjoy cats. The cat will be brown, with blue eyes, white paws, and a grey tail. My cat will not be as large as his sculptures, but it will be about the size of a real cat because I don’t have the years and time it took Claes to build his beautiful art work.

Portrait of Andy Warhol

Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol 1964

Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol 1962

Andy Warhol is on of the most famous pop artist of his time. His famous Marilyn Monroe and 100 Cans made a new genre of art. The colors of all of his pieces engage the observer. My favorite piece is a portrait of Jackie Kennedy. In this piece of art the eye shadow, earrings, and lipstick all are off centered making it one of a kind.

Andy Warhol was born in 1928, he later died from complications from gallbladder surgery at age 58. In 1968 he was shot two to three times in the chest, making him wear a bandage across his body for the rest of his life. His family is originally from Czechoslovakia. Not only was he a pop artist but also in preforming arts. My favorite quotes are, “I think everybody should like everybody.” and, “I’m afraid that if you look at something long enough, it loses all of its meaning.”

For my project I’m thinking about doing a silkscreen of the same object printed multible times but in different colors. I have different ideas for what my object should be, either a pear, portrait of someone, or a chair. I would use silkscreen paint, and paper. Depending on how it looks, I will maybe use and ink pen to outline and deepen the colors.

Claude Monet

Claude Oscar Monet

by Elizabeth Gilbert

“People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if necessary to understand, when its simply necessary to love.”- Claude Monet

Claude Oscar Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris. Claude’s styles of art were Impressionism and Expressionism. He used oil paint. Claude moved around a lot. He lived in Paris and in

1845 his family moved to Le Havre, in 1881 he moved to Poissy, then again in 1883 he moved to Giverny where he died on December 5, 1926. In 1851 Claude’s mother died, and in 1867 Claude had a son. Claude also was becoming blind, so you can tell that his paintings seem to get more blurry as they go on.

I really like Claude Monet’s painting of waterlilies and his painting Canal in Amsterdam. My project will be an acrylic painting of waterlilies. Claude Monet’s paintings of waterlilies inspired me to make one because of how pretty they are

. I also like all the blue and green colors that he used in his paintings.
