Is the style of the work similar to that of other artists working in the same school or is it distinctive to that one artist? Are there other works by this artist that help you to better understand your chosen works? What ideas or philosophy, historical events, other artists, or patronage influenced the artist’s thinking? What artistic problems was he/she trying to solve? Write up to one page (250-400 words) for each work. Be sure to cite your sources!
