Week 5 Discussion

Early Christian art demonstrates the importance of developing a symbolic vocabulary that mimics earlier cultural traditions. Choose a visual symbol (the halo, angel wings, Celtic knotting, etc.) and describe the possible origins of that symbol and how it has been adapted to illustrate a Christian concept. Use specific artworks to support your argument and explain the contextual significance of such design decisions.

This is a thematic response and may require more than one artwork to help support your description of how a particular symbol is read.  Make sure to include an artwork from the Middle Ages, and address the possible origin of the symbol (provide an image)

Week 6 Discussion

This week's material discusses both the Romanesque and Gothic styles.  There were various contextual influences that led to the differences of these two styles of art and architecture. Compare and contrast the differences in styles between the Romanesque and Gothic.  What are some contextual reasons for the differences? Include two examples: one from the Romanesque period and one from the Gothic period.

In your comparison analysis, do not discuss each work separately, but rather, provide a unified analysis of both cathedrals that includes architectural terminology.

Explain the contextual differences that would account for the stylistic variations.

Lastly, ask the class a thought provoking question.

Optional: There are many revivals of these churches scattered in American cities.  If you have visited any (or even the European originals), we would like to hear about your experience.

Week 7 Discussion

One of the major developments in the Proto Renaissance period, and one that will continue in the High Renaissance of the next century, was the artist’s interest in duplicating nature, to attempt a naturalistic visual representation of the world around them .  To not only look inward, but to actually observe nature.

Select one artwork from the Proto Renaissance, fully caption it with artist, title, date and location.

Explain how the artist has tried to recreate the natural world? 

What techniques has the artist used to create a sense of illusionistic space or depth?

And, finally do you think the Proto Renaissance artists are different than the artists and artisans that came before them?.  Include one other culture we have studied to contrast.
