1. In the first paragraph:
a. Identify both works to be discussed by artist, title (place this criterion in quotes or italics), date of completion, area of completion, and present location (as in which museum you found the work).
b. State the purpose of the paper as a thesis sentence that connects both of the selected works.
.
2. In the body of the paper, compare and contrast the two works based on the following criteria. Use ampliative responses to back up your assertions with examples from each work and from outside research.
a. Compare and contrast the style, iconography, and technique of the two works.
b. Compare and contrast the content of each work, including how the attributes of various
media influence content.
c. Compare and contrast the conceptual ideas underlying the artistic movements in which
each work was produced.
d. Evaluate the influence and relevance of both works in defining the societal factors that
affected each work (e.g., the historic, economic, and/or social conditions under which
each work was produced.)
e. For each work, choose one (1) other artwork found in the same gallery as the artworks
you chose as the subjects of your paper. State the title and artist of these work, then briefly give your opinion as to why you believe the curator placed both artworks (the one you chose for your paper and another nearby) in the same gallery. If you cannot visit the museum in person, you are limited to making a virtual visit to the National Gallery of Art.
3. Conclude your paper with a brief summary of the main points of the paper that support your chosen thesis statement
