Art: Today for our art lesson I would like you to research famous tiger paintings and try to copy one of your favourites. You can do this in your Yellow books or on a seperate sheet of paper if you have any at home.Once you have copied the painting, can you research the artist who painted it, what can you find out?
One of my favourite tiger paintings is by an artist called Eugène Delacroix. The painting is called a young tiger playing with it's mother. In French, the picture is called Jeune tigre jouant avec sa mère.
Here it is:
Eugène Delacroix was a french artist who painted this painting in 1830. He is said to have taken inspiration for this painting from his pet cat. This is the largest animal painting Delacroix has done.
