This assignment must associate your written analysis with cited imagery and accurately use terminology associated with the era. Choose and identify qualitative images and details that best define the art history. Consider the guidelines for analysing a work of art as well as this unit’s Lines of Inquiry as you craft your analysis. Properly label and credit all images, and cite primary and secondary sources in Chicago-Turabian style. All properties of the work of art must be clearly identified, including the title, date and period, material data (size, materials, and techniques [when known]), and museum or location. One source must be the attached textbook, chapters 6 and 7.
