Tell me more about the art themes

Animals have long been a favourite subject in art, both the real and imagined variety. We look at three artists (Franz Marc, Salvador Dali and Charley Harper) and at how they depicted different animals, from horses to birds, in their own distinctive styles.

We take inspiration from some of the masters of portrait painting: Frida Kahlo and her distinctive eyebrows; Amedeo Modigliani and his elongated faces; and Pablo Picasso with his Cubist portraits. Each of the artists shows us several different styles and materials that can be used to create a face.

There are three useful theories about colour in art – the theory of the colour-wheel, of colour harmony, and of how colours are used. To illustrate, we look at Keith Haring’s bright dancing figures, at pouring paint with Helen Frankenthaler, and at a dot delirium with Kusama!
