I need a research paper done on two art statues from ancient greece. I will attach the instructions down below please be sure to follow the directions step by step in order to be able to fully do the assignment. Keep in mind this is a museum visit, so I was to visit the Metropolitan museum of art and choose a work of art to write about. In this case I chose the Statue Kouros from Attica. I will attach photos so you can better understand.
NOTE: *** MEANS THIS IS MY OWN INSTRUCTION THAT I HAVE ADDED
Visit the museum and observe the artwork in person. Take a selfie with the work of art. (dont worry about this part I will attach it on my own). Be sure to take notes on your work of art. You will need to know the name of the work, the name of the artist, the date created, the medium and the dimensions. In addition, you should note your personal observations about the work. You should make notes about color, composition, line, texture, content, iconography, the movement the work is a part of (Etruscan, Gothic, etc.) and anything else you may deem interesting or important. ***(feel free to make your own observations)
WRITE YOUR PAPER
Once you’ve observed your artwork in person and taken notes on your observations, you will write your paper. It must be a minimum of 3 pages. This is a research paper. Your research and observations should be illuminated by the class lectures and readings as well as outside sources (Internet sites, scholarly journals, books, etc.) Remember to properly credit your sources.
A typical paper will spend the first part giving background about the artist and the style/movement to which your selected artwork belongs (ie. Islamic art). In the next part of your paper you will describe your artwork from the museum in detail using at least 5 vocabulary terms learned in class (ie. sculpture in the round, complementary colors, etc.). You will first describe the form and then address the content (iconography, narrative, etc.). You may also want to talk about the artwork’s significance – how it may be a political statement or shows an innovative style, for example.
In the rest of the paper you will compare/contrast the artwork to an artwork that has been discussed in our class (either in my Lectures or in the textbook). You should select a work of art that is more similar than different (in terms of similar time period and/or similar iconography). You will discuss how the works are similar and then how they are different, mentioning at least 3 ways they are the same and 3 ways they are different. You should write at least one page for this comparison (five paragraphs). Remember, the best comparisons have more similarities than differences. ****(I will give you two statue options to choose from, I say pick the one that you can write most about).
**** I WILL ATTACH TEXT BOOK PAGES AS WELL AS THE CLASS NOTES SO THAT YOU CAN USE THE SAME KIND OF TERMINOLOGY.
Remember the statue that I am mainly talking about is KOUROS FROM ATTICA and it is to be compared to either the calf bearer or Kroisos for the next part of the essay. Which ever one you can find/write the most about. Thank you so much, I greatly appreciate it email or text me if you have any questions.
