Describe a work of art you like

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 493 with Model Answer:

Describe a work of art (painting, sculpture, visual art, architecture etc.) that you really like.

You should say:
  • how it looks
  • where you first saw it
  • how you feel about this artwork
and explain why you like it so much.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]



Model Answer:
Before I dare to say a word about this particular topic, I must admit that I am no “art enthusiast” or “aesthete” who can analyze or critique any artwork. So, please bear with me and be patient. And thank you for this interesting topic.

Anyway, the artwork, or a painting rather, I want to talk about is of a “Lone flying bird” under the sky on a bright, sunny day. Initially, I couldn’t really make much of this painting. But when I asked the guide in that city art gallery, which I visited with my friends a year ago, about the “artwork”, she told me that it was a “watercolour painting” and that the painting was done by an “autistic” 9 years old boy.

By the way, the section of that city art gallery, which I was visiting at that time, was dedicated and assigned only for the paintings and artworks of young and gifted children of my city, apparently because the city authority wanted to encourage their young and gifted kids to learn and appreciate the arts. However, among many other beautiful looking artworks, this particular piece caught my eye, mainly because it had some truly amazing colour combinations and that too came from a 9 years old autistic young boy!

In fact, the light pink colour of the sky and the flying bird in blue colour matched so perfectly with the crystal clear blue water of the ocean underneath, as if the bluebird (a “great blue heron”) - so tiny in comparison with the ocean - was competing with the sky for attention, and also that it couldn’t possibly be more beautiful looking than the bird! Such awesome paint!

Anyway, I like the artwork so much, mainly because it was so simple and yet so deep in meaning in the sense that it was able to capture the imagination of a gifted and young kid. I like it also because it portrayed the unadulterated beauty of mother nature by playing with some simple colours.
