Art and Art History

History. Contexts: Drawing upon the readings, lectures and course modules, what might be the object’s/monument’s relationship to its historical or artistic context? Visual Qualities: How does composition/form, material/technique, and/or iconography help to illustrate the historical or artistic context of the object/monument? Terms and Names: What terms or key figures do you think are relevant to this work? Provide a definition or explanation. Please write in complete sentences. Write approximately 250 words and up to 500 words. Your answer will be graded in terms of how well you argue for the identification, rather than whether or not you hit on the correct one! Remember, you can refer to other works of art in your answer, but also be sure to explain how the works compare. Your answer should be analytical rather than purely descriptive. Stronger answers will draw upon major stylistic, innovative, thematic changes and the appropriate terminology. Part 2.
