In an essay (complete sentence please!), identify why you think these two images below are shown together by comparing and contrasting the two works. Remember think about how they compare and contrast in terms of: Subject, Culture/Historical Context, Style and Function. Also discuss each work’s individual importance. Show me how much you have learned!
A good essay will have an introduction with thesis statement, body paragraphs and conclusion and be around a page and a half in length.
All information discussed in your essay should come from material discussed in this class. Make sure to cite where you got your information. These citations can be informal, (i.e. (Besancon) or (Khan Academy) or (Kleiner)). No outside sources should be used. This is about showing what you have learned from this class, not what you can find with a quick google search.
