In this paper, you will consider the ways in which the physical properties and the emotional impact of the object can be related to the culture and time that produced the work. Be certain you have generally identified the figures, their attributes, and other items within the work of art. Focus on analyzing the characteristics of the culture that enhance your understanding of the work. In writing this paper you will use your research on the artist, content, and cultural context of the art object. In conducting your research, you should ask a series of questions: • What values in the society do you feel are communicated through the work? • Is this object a good (or typical) example of the artist’s work? • Do you think you feel differently than the members of that culture would feel in front of the work? • What were the factors that shaped work’s symbolism, patronage, and socio-cultural function? • How does your factual research inform your interpretation?
The paper must be 4-5 pages long, double-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman. In-text citations are required.
