Artists often cross over in a range of themes and topics in their work, so some may cross over. For example, David Hockney would be categorised under ‘collage artists’ and ‘landscape artists’ AND ‘portrait artists’.


These artist pages can all be used as an artist research lesson – they all have free downloadable artist research pages to use in your lessons. Enjoy!
