Book analysis

You will be writing a 5 page paper

Updates, expands, or complicates one of Lazzari and Schlesier’s themes presented in the textbook (food & shelter; reproduction & sexuality; deities & places of worship; morality & immortality; power, politics, & glory; social protest / affirmation;
Mind & Body; Race, Gender, Clan, & Class; Nature, Knowledge, & Technology; Entertainment & Visual Culture; Art in Your Life)
In your final project, you must:

Identify: the artists, artwork titles, dates, countries/cultures of origin, art historical movements (if applicable), and medium or locations.
Analyze: the formal and stylistic elements of your chosen artworks (remember that formal analysis does not = just observation or description; analysis = finding meaning).
Interpret: any iconography, symbolism, motifs/tropes, or other significant/meaningful visual elements within your selected artworks.
Contexualize: the artworks within their larger historical and cultural moments (ie: what was happening in society and history at the time of its creation; how do these artworks and artists reflect and/or speak back to these events or issues?).
Develop an argument: that either updates on of the themes proposed by Lazzari and Schlesier, or that creates a new theme by finding at least 2 new artworks and conducting formal analysis and historical/cultural interpretation. Show your reader how your selected artworks are speaking to and/or against your theme in a way that puts different images, time periods, and cultures into conversation with each other. You can be interpretative and have a POV, but your arguments should be supported by specific facts and evidence grounded in formal analysis and historical/cultural research.
