One of the more traditional assignments that students encounter in an introductory ArtHistory class is to go to a museum to observe an object(s) and write a paper that details its stylisticfeatures. Since the Lowe Art Museum on the University of Miami campus has a very finecollection of Renaissance to Rococo paintings, select one painting from this time span toconcentrate on.Once having selected the painting from the Lowe’s collection, pay close attention tostylistic features (i.e., composition, color, use of light/shadow, perspective, figures, pose, gestures,et al). Describe the object and compare/contrast it to pieces we have studied in class, whether inthe PowerPoint lectures or in the textbook. When selecting objects to compare the museum pieceto, be discerning. That is, try to find objects that share more characteristics than not. The aim ofthis assignment is for students to develop an eye for style and to locate the subtle differences thatdistinguish one technique or tendency from another.Organize the paper, which should be five to seven (5-7) pages in length, into anintroductory paragraph, body, and conclusion. The introduction may include some generalinformation (e.g., historical, economic, cultural) about the object’s specific time period, thetechnique utilized to create the object, etc. More importantly, the introduction should include athesis statement about the object’s overall aesthetic. Then organize the body in a logical, analyticfashion, and conclude the paper with some remarks about the significance of the object — that is,how it fits into a larger Renaissance to Rococo art historical framework.
