a Look at the painting and read the description.
Find at least: 1 three verbs in the present. 2 three verbs in the past. The name of the painting is Nighthawks: Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Its by an Austrian painter called Gottfried Helnwein. It shows a scene in a diner in the USA during the 1950s. Outside, the street is dark and empty. Inside, three people are sitting at the counter, a woman and two men. A waiter is standing behind the counter. The man in the middle of the picture is wearing a blue suit and tie. He doesnt look very happy. The woman on the right is laughing and talking to the man next to her, but he isnt listening. The four people in the picture are all famous American stars from the 20th century. The man in the blue suit is the actor Humphrey Bogart. Bogart was born in New York. At first, he acted in the theatre, but for many years he wasnt successful. Then he started working for the Warner film studio and, at the age of 40, he finally became a star. He made more than thirty films. Two of his most famous films were The African Queen and Casablanca. Bogart died in his sleep at his home in Hollywood in 1957.
