TOPIC:

You are required to view an original piece of art in your area (preferly San Diego, CA) and compare/contrast it to an ancient Egyptian work of art from your text (pyramids, spinx..etc) after analyzing both pieces. Please note: If a museum is not available, try your public library, local community college, or an art gallery for sculptures, parks for statues, or government buildings for paintings.

Instructions

1. Identification – Provide Identifying details for each work (10 points = 5 points for each work): Artist: Who was the artist?

Title of the work: What is the title of the work?

Date: When was the work created?

Media: How/with what was the work created?

Location: Where is the work from your area displayed? For the work from your text, please also include the page number.

2. Description – What does each work look like? (100 points = 50 points for each work): Describe the subject matter of each work, in detail, using terms from the “How Do We Talk About Art?” section of the Introduction chapter of our text. Identify and discuss 5 formal elements of art (line, shape, color, balance, texture) in detail, for each work. For instance, don’t just tell me there were lines in the work, tell me what kind (straight, curved, horizontal, diagonal, thick, thin, implied, etc.) and tell me how they affect the composition.

3. Compare and Contrast the two works (70 points): ◦Compare and contrast the work to a similar one in your text. For example, if you choose a portrait of a leader, find one in your text; if you choose a building, like a church, find one in your text to compare.

How are the works similar and how are they different? Is the message or function the same? Is the intended audience different? Do they look alike or not?

Discuss such things as subject, symbolism, message, purpose (aesthetic, social commentary, propaganda, etc.) and effectiveness of the works.
