Choose three (3) works of art from three artists from the Baroque period through the Postmodern era. Your three (3) works of art should come from the time periods or art movements covered in the reading from Unit 4 and Unit 5. Your choices must comply with the following criteria:

•The 3 artworks chosen must be of the same style or time period. For example, you can choose one of the following suggestions: ◦3 Baroque works of art, or
◦3 Impressionist works of art, or
◦3 Abstract Expressionist works of art, etc..
Do not mix up time periods or styles.

•The works of art must have a similar theme. For example: 3 landscapes, or 3 works that focus on religious content, etc. •Out of the three works of art by the three (3) artists selected, you must choose at least two (2) works from two artists discussed in the textbook. If you decide to choose one work of art that is not featured in the textbook, the artist must be discussed in the text. Begin your search by reviewing artists in the text. Then you can search other internet sources for their other works of art.

Please note: Your three (3) works of art must be from the same time period, same style, and have a similar theme

This project is broken down into two parts. In unit four, you will work on the first two bullet points, which are highlighted in bold below, as well as an introduction and conclusion. The "final draft", will be completed for Unit five, and will cover all four bullet points (listed in the U5IP assignment).

Your final paper will be a 1200-1500 word critical essay about the three works of art you have chosen. The goals of a critical essay are to evaluate and analyze the art works based on research, using the vocabulary and concepts you have learned. Your attitude should be detached (i.e. your personal opinions are not as important as academic concepts; The "critical" aspect of the essay refers to this detached attitude, not whether you react positively or negatively to the works)....
