Last  week we worked on formal analysis of ONE artwork.  However, a major part  of Art Historical analysis involves the COMPARISON of TWO or more  artworks.  By COMPARING artworks, we can increase our understanding of  each individual work. 

Please select ONE artwork from last week’s 14th century powerpoint,  and ONE artwork from this week's 15th century powerpoint . In an essay,  you will compare these two  objects. You will create a thesis statement that proposes the reason for  one significant similarity OR difference between your two objects.  As  you will see, your choices should have ONE OBVIOUS SIMILARITY OR OBVIOUS DIFFERENCE.

FORMAT OF THE ESSAY:

PARAGRAPH ONE: Introduce your objects and state your thesis.  Your  thesis will explain the REASON for one similarity OR one difference  between your art objects.  Your reason will be SPECULATIVE (because we  have no written sources for prehistoric art; we must rely upon visual  evidence).

BODY PARAGRAPHS (between 3 and 6 paragraphs): Each body paragraph  will describe BOTH objects in terms of ONE category of formal analysis  (line, shape, texture, etc.) 

SYNTHESIS PARAGRAPHS (between 2 and 4 paragraphs): You will propose a  reason for the significant visual similarity or difference between your  objects.  Remember, your thesis will be SPECULATIVE and RELY ON THE  VISUAL APPEARANCE OF BOTH OBJECTS.

SUMMARY PARAGRAPH: RESTATE your thesis.

Papers must be double-spaced in 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Acceptable formats are PDF and Word documents.
