FLCC Spring Session 2015 30% of Course Grade – Essay Total 100 points. First section: 50 points Second section: 50 points Due Date : 1st May Carefully read the instructions for each assignment. Your grades depend on meeting the specific requirements Description: Students are to write a short essay based on one piece of art (a painting, sculpture or architecture) from the periods covered in this course (Prehistoric through to the Gothic periods). The chosen piece has to be one already referenced in the Gardner textbook (please indicate the number of the image in your essay). The essay is graded out of a total of 100 points and there are two parts/sections to the essay, each worth 50 points. First section of the essay: (50 points) The essay has to explore your chosen one piece of artwork or architecture in far greater depth and detail than is given in the textbook. The essay must analyze the artwork in its historical context. Students should examine the following aspects of your chosen piece (note not all may be applicable to your chosen artwork or architecture) : 1. Politics and History 2. Religion 3. Patronage 4. Subject and iconography 5. Style and function 6. Material/ Medium / Techniques 7. Significance Second part of the essay:Precedents and Legacy of your chosen art/ architecture (50 points) For the second part of the essay students will explore the precedents and legacy of the same artwork discussed in part one. This involves looking at how your chosen piece was influenced by earlier pieces of art and/or helped shape the development of artworks produced later in time. This may require researching beyond the periods covered on this course. For example, the ancient Egyptian sculpture of Menkaure and Khamerernebty served as a precedent (inspiration) for the later, Archaic Greek Kouros statue (in which it was imitated). The legacy would be sculpture created in the Renaissance periods and up to the 19th century. Legacy examples would include how the Roman Colosseum helped inspire the development of the modern sports superdome/ stadium and Polykleitos’s Classical Greek Spearbearer sculpture would influence Michelangelo’s Renaissance masterpiece, David. Keep in mind that this second section is not a separate essay, but a continuation of the material you present in part one. In this section you are merely connecting your chosen piece (from part one) to its earlier (precedents) and later (legacies) counterparts. Use primary sources and art historical documents/ websites / documentaries to obtain information on your chosen piece. You are expected to use some primary source material as an aid in analyzing the work of art. Primary sources are original/eyewitness material rendered during the historical period in which your artwork was created (rather than more recently). Examples would be Vitruvius for Roman architecture and Procopius for Byzantine art (Hagia Sophia). The essay should be a minimum of 5 pages (not including the title page, bibliographic page and any images or diagrams), Essay must be double-spaced using 12-point font and one-inch margins. Essay must have a title page Essay must have a bibliography page Please check your written assignments for spelling and grammar. Citations must be correctly formatted (see below). There must be a minimum of 6 non-Gardner sources, which you would list in your bibliography Please use primary and secondary sources. Also allowed as additional research are credible web sites, such as history, museums and art web sites. Any essay that does not meet any of the above requirements will recieve a low/fail grade Bibliographic Information The FLCC library web page provides links to style guides.
