The “Mona Lisa”, Leonardo da Vinci. (1503-1506)

Hi kids!

Your favourite painting is… “Mona Lisa” at least, for most of you.

The Mona Lisa is probably the most famous portrait in the world, but not much is known about it.

Look into her eyes and at her mysterious smile. Is she looking at you? Is she following you? Is she happy? Is she sad?

No one knows the right answer, so your guess is as good as mine;)

Enjoy the video!

“The Arnolfini Portrait”, Van Eyck. (1434)

Hi kids!

Today we are going to talk about art, artists and paintings.

My favourite painting is “The Arnolfini Portrait”. It’s by Jan van Eyck. He painted it in the fifteenth century.

In this painting the two people are in a bedroom and there is a chest, a bed, a lamp and a mirror.(You click on the mirror and you will discover something;)

The wife is wearing a green and blue dress. She’s giving her hand to her husband. She feels calm.

The husband is wearing a brown and black coat. He’s taking his wife’s hand. He’s looking to the painter.

There is a small dog in the picture and there are a pair of sandals on the floor. On the left wall there is an open window and some fruit.

This painting makes me feel relaxed and happy because of the soft colours and the tranquility of the scene.

What’s your favourite painting? What’s your favourite artist?
