Questions

Once you’ve selected the 10 artists you would like to focus on, you’ll

need to research answers to the following seven questions or question

groups:

1. What’s the year of the artist’s birth (and, where applicable, death)?

2. Where was the artist born? Where did he or she create the majority

of his or her work (if at a different location than this place of birth)?

3. What medium did the artist use? Did he or she use more than one

main medium?

4. Which art movement did the artist contribute to? If he or she

contributed to more than one movement, where did this artist make

the greatest impact?

5. What are some of the artist’s most famous works of art? Choose

one of these works. In what ways is the piece characteristic of the

movement specified above? (Include an image of the chosen

piece.)

6. What challenges, if any, did the artist face that may have affected

his or her work? What was happening in the world at that time that

influenced the artist’s work?

7. What’s innovative about the artist’s work for that time period?

You’ll then write an APA-formatted essay that contains a title page, a

brief introduction and conclusion, in-text citations supporting your

research, and a reference list. Answer each question using complete

sentences. The essay should be a minimum of 1,200 words. However,

most students finish the project in about 2,000 words.

Answer the questions in essay format; do not answer them in list format.

You’ll need to find at least one source for each artist from the internet, a

library, or elsewhere. Be sure to use reputable sources when searching

for information on your selected artists.

Writing Guidelines

1. Your essay should be a minimum of 1,200 words.

2. Your essay should be double-spaced, with 1″ margins and 12-point

Times New Roman font.

3. Your entire project should be contained in one (1) Microsoft Word

or Rich Text Format file.

4. Your essay should include a cover page and works cited page

using APA formatting.

Please let me know if you need a sample of the essay, I had one given to me I can look for it.
