Short analytic research paper
Paper due Sunday, Nov. 22nd
Choose a specific single artwork we have looked at in class, or an artwork we haven’t by an artist we have studied. (I CHOOSE ANDY WARHOL)
Find 3-4 online sources with further information about the work (painting, sculpture, performance, etc).
In 2-3 pages describe:
• the visual qualities of the work
• the cultural and aesthetic context in which it was made
• why it was made (the artist’s interests)
• any other information you find compelling and/or noteworthy
In the first paragraph, you must include the artist’s name, the title of the work, its date and medium, and a general overview of the work (visual description, size) to orient the reader. The rest of the paper can happen in any order.
Be sure to consult the document “Tips for writing about art”, posted in Moodle.
Length: 2-3 pages
