Student a

Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853. He worked at many jobs, such as at an art gallery, a school, a bookstore, as a preacher, and at last, he became an artist. He didn’t have a very happy life. He painted sad paintings with poor people in them. His paintings were always very dark until he saw some colorful Japanese paintings. Then Van Gogh started painting happier paintings. Most

of his work was in the Postimpressionist style.

One day, he moved to live with his brother because he was unhappy where he lived, and he wanted to find someone to paint with. When he finally found someone, he wished he hadn’t. Van Gogh and the other artist did not get along. After this, Van Gogh became so sad that he cut part of his ear off!

After these things happened, he painted one more gloomy painting. It was called Wheatfield with Crows. After he finished it, he shot himself. His famous works are The starry Night, Wheatfield with Crows, sunflowers and, of course, self portrait.

Student B

Claude Monet was born in 1840 on November 14 in Paris. He grew up in Le Ha­ver, near the sea. Even when he was young he was a very good artist. His pictures were so good that an art supply store let him hang his pictures in their window.

Monet’s parents did not want him to become an artist because they thought he would not make a good living. That did not stop him though. When he was 20, he studied art at an inexpensive art school in Paris.

Monet often went on trips around France to paint. Sometimes, his friend Camille came along. Camille later became Monet’s wife. They had two sons, Jean and Michel. In 1878, Camille got sick and died. A few years later, Monet got married again to a woman named Alice.

Later, Monet and his family moved to Giverny, a small town near Paris. This is where he painted his Impressionist wheatstack and cathedral paintings that be­came very famous. Their house also had a wonderful garden with a lily pond that had a Japanese bridge across it. These were his favorite things to paint.

Monet died in 1926 in Giverny. Many people came to his funeral. Unlike many artists, he was famous even before he died. Now his house in Giverny is a muse­um that is visited by many people. His famous works are Morning Haze, Poppies Blooming, Lily Pond
