Portraits Reimagined

“Louis, Duc de Bourgogne”  originally by artist Hyacinthe Rigaud, year 1703. Recreated by Year 4 students after visiting the Historic Mansion, Kenwood House.

Richard Sackville (1589–1624), 3rd Earl of Dorset

Mary Countess Howe

Lady Diana Cecil

Pieter Van Den Broecke by Frans Hals


To create these portraits the students used paper in different ways, folding and cutting it to make it look like lace. We looked carefully at the patterns on the fabric the  people wore and made our own felt stamps which we used to print patterns and collage to make clothing.
