Poetry Prompt - through Sunday, January 31, 2010


By Kees van Dongen

This week, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:


This week, we celebrate the birthday of Dutch Fauvist painter Kees van Dongen, who was born on January 26, 1877. (Kees van Dongen’s full name was Cornelis Theodorus Maria van Dongen.)

To honor this artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers samples of this artist’s work to accompany this week’s prompt.
