► Work in pairs.
Cut out and shuffle the parts of the two biographies. Students in pairs have to sort out the cards to make the biographies complete.
Salvador Dali was born in Spain in 1904. When he was a child, he
showed strange behavior and often interrupted his class in school. As he got older,
he started to paint pictures that came from his dreams.
His dreams and his paintings were scary and unreal. Dali
went to art school in Madrid, Spain. He got kicked out,
and never finished. He even spent time in jail. However, he continued to paint,
and his art style became known as Surrealism. Salvador Dali drew everyday items,
but changed them in odd ways. For example, one of his paintings is of melting clocks. Before he died
at the age of 85 in 1989, Dali had created works in film, ballet, opera, fashion,
jewelry, and advertising illustrations.
LEONARDO DA VINCI
In 1452, Leonardo Da Vinci was born in an Italian town called Vinci. He
lived in a time period called the Renaissance, when
everyone was interested in art. Even though Da Vinci was a great artist, he
became famous because of all the other things he could do. He
was a sculptor, a scientist, an inventor, an architect, a musician,
and a mathematician. When he was twenty, he
helped his teacher finish a painting called The Baptism of Christ. When
he was thirty, he moved to Milan. That
is where he painted most of his pictures. DaVinci’s
paintings were done in the Realist style.
