HUM 1020: Arts and Culture
Library Assignment #1
Write a coherent essay examining and discussing the dramatic values of ONE artwork from the periods(Renaissance) you have studied so far. I highly recommend Italian Baroque because of its dramatic/theatrical qualities. If you are feeling bold, you may pick from the future periods too but come to me first so I can give you the guidance on what to look for. Use the terms studied in class and the list of elements/principles of art below to describe the artistic form and content of this artwork. Finally, discuss how this artwork reflects the cultural trends of its era.
Paper should be done in your own words with 500 words minimum . Use MLA or APA format.
