Pick one (1) work of art and write a contextual analysis of the object. This contextual analysis will provide evidence in support of your thesis regarding the meaning of the artwork.
Focus on the religious, historical/social, and biographical context of the artwork. Since this will be including the visual elements and the artwork′s subject and meaning, outside sources as evidence will be necessary. Please include at least two (2) sources outside of the textbook and image citation.
You may use any of the works of art from your previous assessments.
This should be a minimum of 3 pages (no more than 5). A properly labelled image of your chosen artwork must be included (this is not part of the 3 pages). This should come before the Work Cited page.
This is to be turned in on Blackboard. I will not accept the paper turned in by email. Submit a .doc or .docx file only, any other file will not be accepted and will receive a 0.
Note: You may not use The Swing by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. Do not use the same artwork as you used for Building Contextual Analysis Discussion Board.
