The Age of Enlightenment was followed by the Romantic period, an expanse of time that saw the French Revolution, the American Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon, major scientific advances, major loss of human life, devout faith in the doctrine of human reason, and the loss of faith in human reason and a return to the sublime right of nature and spirituality. In short, a span of time defined by massive change and inconsistency. In this case assignment, compare the Neo-Classicist painter Jacque-Louis David?s Oath of Horatti and Romanticist painter Eug?ne Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People, in order to examine how these artists represented these tumultuous years. Again, use the formal language of visual analysis to explore their artistic approaches. Briefly reference the two previous art
styles we have studied (Renaissance and Baroque) in order to trace how these two new art
styles (Neo-Classicism and Romanticism) differ or carry on the earlier traditions. Use the required course materials to help you discuss, briefly, (1) the history
of Neo-Classical and Romanticist art
and these two artists in particular, (2) the different approaches and beliefs in human reason and rationality, and (3) how David and Delacroix chose to convey revolution.
It is important to note that this assignment is your third encounter with Art History
Criticism, and it is equally important that you continue to exercise your ability to visually analyze. The required course materials under ?How To Write About Art
Criticism and Formal Analysis? will continue to aid you in developing these skills.
Expectations for All Assignments
? An explanation of the values?influences, themes, techniques, subjects?characteristic of the period or style under study.
? Some information about how the social, political, or religious history
of the period influenced its art
? Biographical information about the artist whose work is assigned or (in SLP assignments) chosen for reflection.
Here are five keys to writing a great case assignment! For each case paper in this course, please:
1. Make sure you fully address the case assignment prompt- don't just describe the painting and don?t forget to ?really look? at the painting. Be sure to respond to the expectations stated under "Learning Objectives" in the Syllabus.
2. Apply ideas from the background readings to your analysis and discussion of the case assignment prompt.
3. Include a separate cover page that includes your name, the course name, the module, and assignment name.
4. Set your format to 1" margins on all four sides, 12-point font, double spaced. The Case Study essays should be 3-4 pages, double spaced, and the SLP assignments should be 2-3 pages.
5. Include a separate cover AND reference page at the end that includes every website and article on which you base your information and analysis. In the reference list, please note that a URL with no additional information is not a complete reference. Over time, link root will make any URL useless. Each reference should contain all the information a reader would need to find the source.
