Italian Renaissance Art

1) Imitate “David“s pose as closely as you can, and consider what and how you feel, and what that might mean
for the work of art. Then write half page in which you describe what you observed, or learned, in the process.
2) Write a 1.5 page paragone, in which you draw on the two period examples by Leonardo and Castiglione in
composing a thoughtful comparison between two majors “Ceramics” and “drawing”. You’re welcome to
structure your comparison as you see fit, but you should consider and extend the criteria used in Renaissance
discussions, and should take a definitive stance: how do the two compare, and why?
