Recreating Famous Portraits – Kick Start

Task description: This week during I had free time, so I got to chooses what I wanted to do, I decided to do summer learning journey. I did a task called ‘Recreating Portraits’.  I did a portrait called Jeanne (Spring) By: Édouard Manetby. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

Fun fact for the Day: Did you know that Spring is a painting by Édouard Manet that was created in 1881. It debuted at the Paris Salon of 1882 and was considered the greatest and final public success of Manet’s Salon career. It depicts Parisian actress Jeanne DeMarsy in a floral dress with parasol and bonnet against a background of lush foliage and blue sky, as the embodiment of Spring. The painting also became the first work of art ever to be published in color.
