Unformatted text preview: All Midterm 1 Pics Wednesday, October 13, 2010 10:36 PM Art History 1A, guidelines for first midterm examination October 14 , 2010 Bring a blue book!! No cell phones or other electronic devices may be in use during the exam. Note: a good place to review the images is the Visual Resource Facility, located in 153 Everson. All images used in questions 1 and 2 will be taken from the visual images marked with asterisks on the lists of images attached to the Syllalbus. Question 3 will draw from the whole range of the material covered in class. 1. Individual image identifications - 24 points (4 images, 6 points for each one; 5 minutes per image) Give the following information for each image: Identification Be as precise as you can Provenience This is the location. You should name the city or site where the piece comes from. Try to be as specific as you can. If you say simply Egypt, or Mesopotamia, or Crete, or Greece, you will receive partial credit, but for full credit you will need to know the specific place. If the original location is unknown, then say so. Date You may give an approximate date (round out to a century) or a range of dates, but give a numerical date, not merely the name of a time period. Interpretation - Write two or three sentences (complete sentences, not just phrases!). You should describe the object/structure, etc., and discuss how we can apply meaning to it. Consider such factors as function, state of preservation, material, where the piece/object was found or displayed, historical or social significance (if known), who the potential audience of the piece/object might have been. 2. Comparison and contrast - 51 points (3 pairs of images, 17 points per pair; 12 minutes per pair) Give the same four pieces of information (ID, provenience, date, interpretation) for each image in the pair. Discuss Image A (left) first, then Image B (right). Then compare and contrast the pair. Each pair has been chosen to illustrate a particular theme we have talked about in class, so consider the following: what theme is represented? what does it mean? why is the representation of this theme important in ancient Mediterranean art? does the theme have a different meaning in the different regions (e.g. Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Aegean world) discussed in class? 3. Definitions - 25 points You will be given several proper names or terms connected with the art of Egypt, Mesopotamia, or the Aegean world, and you will be asked to give brief definitions for them. Write two or three sentences for each term/name, and give a specific example of a work of art connected with the term, or one which illustrates the meaning of the term.
