Remember: spelling counts!

You must make an attempt to address three components (.5 pts each): a) the artist b) approximate date (within 10 yrs) c) "significance" ie why you think it is by a certain artist in a particular time period (if you are not sure of the exact artist, make sure to guess the country and/or movement it belongs to) 1 Image list **These are the ONLY works you will need to know for the slide IDs and comparisons.

You will have 40 minutes to complete the two essays (apx. 20 minutes each). **As mentioned above, you may, but are not required to, include works not on the exam image list in your essays (but pls. make sure we have covered them in class). 1. The themes of revolution and patriotism have been the driving forces behind many of the works and movements we've seen so far. Consider the role that national pride played in four different images, including at least one work that addresses the power of the crowd. 2. Conduct an in-­‐depth investigation of Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte, by comparing it to three other works that critique bourgeois leisure activities. Please make mention of the specific techniques, styles, and subject matter featured in each work of art. 3. Please discuss how the visual representation of women changed over time, referencing four different art works, two of which must be by female artists. You must also incorporate points from Linda Nochlin's essay, "Why have there been no great female artists?" 4. Explain how Picasso and Braque initiated an important shift in the way that people thought about painting in the early 20th century, especially with regard to changes in 3-­‐D spatial perception, and the traditional materials used. You must discuss one work by each artist, and reference at least two other works made by different artists. 5. In Rosalind Krauss' essay, "Forms of Readymade," she compares both the "mythic personas" and sculptures of Duchamp and Brancusi. Construct your own comparative essay pairing the two artists. What are the similarities and differences between their works and approaches to art making? Please give an in-­‐depth analysis of at least one work by each artist, while incorporating points from the Krauss article (whether you are in agreement or disagreement). 6 ...
