y = period or style (Early, High, or Northern Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo, Fauvism, Surrealism, Op Art, from your notes and the timeline in your book or syllabus) In addition to the above, you should know the meaning of any terms used in the abovementioned chapters, and acquaint yourself with any artist discussed at length in lecture or the textbook (most of the artists in Chapter 16, and any artist given a capsule biography in the textbook within the abovementioned chapters). Know the styles associated with Dali, Miro, Magritte, and Klee (Surrealism) and Harnett (trompe l'oeil). Know the three artists we studied who were greatly influenced by the art of children (Kandinsky, Klee, and Miro), and the artist credited with the first nonobjective painting (Kandinsky). Dates will not be emphasized, other than a general knowledge of the approximate dates of the periods in question, and which artists belonged to which periods. Style guide
