TASK

These two paintings are both about human portraits and in surrealist style. The first one was drew by charcoal pencils and  the lines are orderly. But the other one was drew by normal pencils and the lines are optional. Coincidentally, They are both in black and white that without colours .

I noticed that the first one is main by surrealism but the other one is main by fauvism. 

The Self-portrait with goat has a little exaggeration to show the person’s face. The feature, the eyes and the nose are sharp that looks like many triangles get together. But the Portrait of Bourgeat as Vassaux is more abstract which just like a child’s drawing.
