Library Research Assignment
Choose 3 works of art from 3 artists from the Baroque period through the Postmodern era. Your 3 works of art should come from the time periods or art movements covered in the readings from Unit 4 and Unit 5. This assignment will have 6 Sections (A–F). Section A contains the criteria for the 3 works you will choose; Sections B–F will be the actual sections that must be contained in your paper. For Unit 4, you will complete Sections A–D. In Unit 5, you will complete Sections E and F as well as make revisions to Sections A–D.
Your final paper will be a critical essay of 1,200–1,500 words about the 3 works of art that you will choose. The goals of a critical essay are to evaluate and analyze the artworks based on research using the vocabulary and concepts you have learned. Your attitude should be detached (i.e., your personal opinions are not as important as academic concepts). The “critical” aspect of the essay refers to this detached attitude, not whether you react positively or negatively to the works.
Your choices must comply with the following criteria:
In your paper, include a description of the works, including the style. Describe basic facts as well as the visual appearance of the work.
You will include a summary of the artists’ personal philosophies of art (if they can be found in published sources) and the prevailing trends and schools of thought in the art world at the time and in the place the artist was working. For instance, discuss what was taking place in each artist’s city, country, and church that may have provoked a reaction from the artist or the greater society. Include any information that might help the reader understand the artist’s point of view or why the artist made his or her choices in this work of art.
Include an explanation of how the works fit into the context of the time period.
You will need to use the library to learn about the artists. In the library, complete the following steps:

Important Note: At least 2 works of art that you choose must be from your textbook, and you must choose works by 3 different artists.
