Famous Paintings

Help with notes for a critical essay about the three works is given. The goals of a critical essay are to evaluate and analyze theart works based on research, using the vocabulary and concepts you have learned. Your attitude should be detached. The “critical” aspect of the essay refers to this detached attitude, not whether you react positively or negatively to the works. Your essay must include the following points:

1)A description of the works including the style.
2)A summary of the artists’ personal philosophies of art (if they can be found in published sources), the prevailing trends and schools of thought in the art world at the time and in the place the artist was working. For instance, what was going on in the artists’ city, country, church, that the artist or the people around him/her may have been reacting to. Any other information that might help the reader understand why the artists made the choices they did and where they were “coming from.”
You will need to use the AIU Library to learn about the artists. In the Library, click Search Library and then use the “three boxes” search:
Topics: General Studies
Categories: Art
Resources: Select All
Click Find Library Resources.

3)An explanation of how the works fit into the context of the time period.
4)Compare the three works in terms of form, content, and subject matter. Using the terminology and concepts that you have learned in the course, explain the similarities and differences in the styles of the works and the context in which they were made. Compare and contrast their aesthetic qualities and symbolic significance, as well as the artists’ points of view. Your personal point of view that you have developed throughout the paper will be summarized here. As with the preceding three sections, you will write in your own words, supported by research.
You should quote the sources internally in your paper, include a reference page at the end of the paper, and also a URL for each work of art at the end of the paper.

Discuss principles of design and formal elements of art.
Demonstrate an understanding of visual literacy.
Discuss works of art in a manner that demonstrates an understanding of the relationship between art and history.
Apply critical thinking skills to the content of the course

Photography in the 1800’s

I am preparing an essay (will be 6 pages) and need some assistance developing an outline and selecting 3-4 works art / photography to use for the essay.

I may need additional feedback and tutoring as I write the essay itself, but I will post that as a different question for more credits if anyone is willing to assist.

TOPIC: Discuss how new influences play a role in the art of the late nineteenth century. Discuss the impact of the advent of photography on artists of this time. Use specific works to illustrate your perspective.

The Mona Lisa as one of the following philosophical/religious foundations is included.

Given a specific work of art (from any discipline of the humanities), discuss how its corresponding philosophical position influences the aesthetic values of the work of art. The work of art must have been created during the period and/or in response to the given philosophy (ie- Mona Lisa and Renaissance Humanism). To get started, choose one of the following philosophical/religious foundations to guide your essay:

Ancient Buddhism
Medieval Christianity
Renaissance Humanism
Enlightenment Humanism
Each of the aforementioned philosophical positions is closely associated with a specific period and aesthetic style. In this essay you will discuss the philosophy, its major influences (such people, social and/or political influences) and you will analyze the work of art to reveal how it adheres to the aesthetic values of the given philosophy. The essay should use the work of art as an example of the influence of philosophy in the humanities.

Analysis of a Piece of Art

Mrs. Sally,

Happy New Year. Can you please help me with Assignment?


For your first assignment, you will need to find a work of art (the work you select need not be a non-western image, but it can be from any time period or culture) in your community. Once you have found something, you will need to take a photograph of this work of art and analyze it based upon the terminology presented in your textbook and outlined below. Your detailed analysis should be written in the form of a five page essay, where you discuss such aspects as subject, color, composition, material, scale, technique, and style. When you are finished with your paper, please place the essay along with any images together in the appropriate drop box.

Although you may find several works of interest, please select only one work of art to write about. Your paper will be a “formal analysis” which entails a complete visual description of the image. It requires careful and thoughtful observation, and does not require any historical background or any research. Before you begin, copy down the complete identification information on the work you choose, which should then appear at the top of your completed paper. You may simply copy this information from the museum label, or ask for the information at the location you have selected. The information should include title, artist, date, scale, medium (material), and location.

Next, examine this work very carefully, taking notes and thinking about how and why the work was constructed. Your description of the work must be very precise, complete, well-organized and articulate. Therefore, please make sure to consider all of these aspects (although not necessarily in this order):
1. Composition: What is the subject or narrative? How is the work organized and unified? How do your eyes move around the work, and what do you focus on?

2. Color: Describe the color and explain how it affects the mood of the work and how it is used to organize the composition.

3. Objects: What exactly is in the work? Figures? Landscape? Is it crowded or empty? Is it naturalistic or abstract, and to what degree?

4. Technique: Describe the brushstroke in a painting, or the particular material of a sculpture, and how the material is used or manipulated. How does the material that the artist chose contribute to the reading of the work?

5. Size and shape: Is the work large or small, horizontal or vertical? How does this contribute to how you read it?

Give a brief introduction to the work. Then write at least one paragraph on each of these aspects explained above, making sure to write clearly and to organize your paper carefully. You do not need to follow the order that I have given, but write in a way that presents each aspect in a unified manner. If you are not certain what type of work of art to discuss, you may submit photographs of your options to your faculty member for approval before you begin your essay. In your conclusion, explain how the creative process is revealed in the work you have selected.
