American Art Project– AssignmentInstructions

Statement of Purpose or “Why Am I Doing This?”

 

It is important to remember, represent, and honor a collective past, but it is equally important to understand a deeper significance to visual records. In this assignment, you will examine works of art available through the website of the Architect of the Capitol. The purpose is to emphasize how art can be used to portray historical events and convey a message when viewed in the context of the age in which it was created. This assignment is not an art critique. Look for connections between events and images. You will NOT be describing the event the artwork depicts, but the period of American history in which it was created. You will be creating either a document or a presentation.

 

Completing This Assignment:

 

Part I

·         Click on this link:http://aoc.gov/paintings-0(Historic Rotunda Paintings)

·         Click on the individual images for each of the 8 paintings to see them in more detail and read the short article on each of the corresponding pages for these paintings.

·         Choose 4 images and write a 200–300-word paragraphfor each of them, addressing the following:

1.      When was the image commissioned and hung? What is the historical context of this painting? What events were occurring when this painting was created that could have contributed to its content? How are those connections between content and context most clearly presented?

2.      Is the artist successful in communicating contextual influences? Is the message too difficult to understand for a modern viewer?
