These two artworks bookend our explorations of art in Chapters 1 & 2. Using formal vocabulary (consult the list of terms given in Module 1 and make sure you understand them), discuss what has happened to painting in the time between the making of these paintings. Discuss the respective movements, the artists, the historical contexts, the painting styles, the influences, the genres, etc. To do a really good job on this assignment I strongly recommend (that is pretty close to require!) that you go to Google Images and find the biggest file image you can of each painting and then zoom into it and study it up close. You will be amazed that these are both “oil paintings on canvas” but at the same time have nothing in common in other formal aspects. Note that the image for the second artwork here and in our textbook is only a detail–that means it’s only a partial view of the painting. I do not need you to include the images in your essay. It should take you at least one full page of normal font and spacing to accomplish what you need to. WRITE ONLY IN YOUR OWN WORDS, using the textbook as your source. If you quote directly from the textbook that must be clearly indicated. It is NEVER okay in this course–or any other course–to cut and paste from outside sources and present that as your own work. I am looking for an essay that shows your understanding of what you have read in our textbook. This is an important beginning essay as it will bring formal “reading” of artworks into the course right away. It will be somewhat challenging–but why not start out with a challenge!! Just do your best–I will give you feedback to help you improve. TextBook: The Search for Truth: Early Photography, Realism and Impressionism.
