Ms. Timmons’ Class Week of April 24-28

The artist for this week is Damien Hirst. He is an English artist known for being very famous during the 1990s in the United Kingdom. Death is a major theme in his artwork, especially with his series called Natural History, which features preserved dead animals such as a cow, sheep, and shark. The animals are floating in formaldehyde, and sometimes segmented (see the photo above). He is also one of the richest artists, with a net worth of $250 million.
