A piece of art you want to buy

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 507 with Model Answer:

Describe a piece of art that you want to buy.

You should say:
  • what this piece of art is
  • how you learned about it
  • how you think you would be able to buy it
and explain why you want to buy this piece of art.

[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 1:
When it comes to choosing any artwork, I am not very particular about it since I appreciate pretty much all kinds of art. But, still, sometimes, I happen to rate a particular type of art, rather unconsciously, I must say, above the others because it just seems so “unique”.  Today, I would like to talk about one such fine piece of artwork which I really want to buy.

Now, even though I already have said before that I happen to appreciate all kinds of arts, I feel like I am a bit biased toward those types of works which use animals as their subjects.  And if that animal is the “king of the Jungle” or the “lion king”, then that’s even better except, of course, the lion king in this piece of art doesn’t exactly hunt or does anything like that, rather it is seen to be resting peacefully. 

Now, the background of this particular art doesn’t quite reveal whether the lion is resting in an animal zoo or in a wild forest, but in the background of that image could be seen some kind of storm.

By the way, I came to learn about this beautiful piece of painting after visiting an art gallery a few months ago when one of my friends took me there to see some of the new artworks of his uncle.  I didn’t buy it at that time because I just didn’t carry enough money with me then.  But, I sure plan to buy this after a couple of months by diverting some funds away from my daily allowance.  After all, this is an expensive piece of artwork.

Now, to answer why I want to buy this artwork, all I can say is, it is one of the most beautiful pieces of artwork I have ever seen which has managed to portray such a contrasting theme of life where a fierce and deadly animal is actually seen to be resting while otherwise peaceful mother nature is found to be violent and hostile.  Quite a masterful stroke indeed!


Model Answer 2:
Ohh, this is a nice topic to talk about, and I feel lucky to have this.

Well, the piece of art that I'd be interested in buying and owning is the one that I have seen in a local museum a couple of months ago. I don't know much about the artist, but the painting is simply outstanding. It depicts a mother who is holding her newborn baby while the background of it depicts a calm sunset eve with a detailed scenery of a rural setting. It's a beautiful oil painting on canvas.

I learned about this piece of painting, which seemed surrealistic to me, the last time I went to visit the museum that is located at the heart of our town. There were several artworks and sculptures, but that one caught my eye and I spent at least 10 minutes witnessing this fine artwork. It was displayed in a prominent place, and it's hard to miss it.

I am not sure if I'd be able to buy the original one or if the museum or the artist would be interested in selling it unless a billionaire approaches to have it! However, I would be happy to have a copy of this art; but it has to be painted by the original artist.

I want to buy it because I just love the theme of the art. It reminds me of my childhood when my mother was alive, and the lady of the art reminds me of her. It brings back a lot of memories and emotions. Additionally, I find the peaceful and serene background of the art soothing and realistic. It's like a window to a different world, a world where everything is beautiful, and it makes me feel relaxed and at ease. That's why I want to have it in my house and be able to see it every day.
