Overview Write a short (2-3 pages double-spaced) paper comparing and contrasting
Write a short (2-3 pages double-spaced) paper comparing and contrasting two works of art. One work of art will be from the first five chapters(Look for ancient Greek or Egyptian art）and the other will be a more contemporary (20th or 21st Century) work of art or design. This is a visual exercise. DO NOT research the works!
As noted above, this is a purely visual exercise. Begin by just looking at these two works of art. Think of the vocabulary and terms you looked at last week. Take notes describing exactly what you see in front of you. Then, think about areas where your two works intersect and diverge. The goal is to avoid using existing research regarding these works and instead focus on issues like:
`line(visible or implied)
·size and scale
·light and shadow
·pose or gesture
A few examples could include comparing and contrasting the Great Pyramid of Giza and The Breuer Building (Whitney Museum of American Art), the Cave Paintings at Lascaux, and Spencer Finch’s Darkness (Lascaux Interior) series, or the Discobolus of Myron and Sui Jianguo’s Discus Thrower.
