Top 10 Famous Pieces of Art Stolen by the Nazis 5. Altarpiece of Veit Stoss Sculptor: Veit Stoss

This piece is a painting exploring protest and the right to speak. The artist has used oil paint and smooth brush strokes to produce smooth blends which are easy on the eye. I will try and produce the same sort of effect with soft pastels when I come to do my final piece. The composition consists of several protestors in the fore group, and famous protestors' names in the background, backed by an a rican flag. This is a patriotic symbol and gives the art a propaganda feel.

In this project, students are asked to take a famous piece of art and increases its size by a scale factor of at least three. The extra challenge is that each piece of art is divided into 2-4 pieces and each student only gets a portion of the original. The more accurate their measurements, the better it will match up with the pieces their teammates are creating.
