This assignment asks you to identify a work of art from the Renaissance, using the timeline
indicated in the book. Your analysis must be a description of the work – using elements of
design, as we have discussed in class. Be sure to include a title, the name of the artist and a date
for when the work was created. Be sure to identify the work as either Southern or Northern
Renaissance and explain how it either typifies or defies the conventions of the Renaissance.

Please be sure to focus on the work and not on the biological information of the artist.

Presentation:
Use the screen so that the whole class can view image. Identify the artist, date, place – either
Northern or Southern Renaissance. Suggested topics would be to identify key characteristics of
the Renaissance style, general themes and/or meanings and any significant biographical
information of the artist. Recorded voice/audio is a requirement.

This is not a formal presentation – just be sure to introduce it and explain why it is interesting to
you. Think of it as starting a conversation which the rest of us will finish.

This paper must be at least three (3) doubled-spaced pages, prepared with one-inch margins. 12-
point font in either Times/Times New Roman must be used. MLA formatting is required. Any

Analysis:

The purpose of this analysis is to look closely at one work of Renaissance art, or do a
comparison of two related pieces, in order to better understand the Renaissance. An example is
as follows: The color, shapes and subject of Raphael’s Madonna exemplifies the style of High
Renaissance.
or
Contrasting the design styles of Brunelleschi and Ghiberti, and recognizing how their respective
work ultimately influenced the iconic Renaissance structure, the Duomo.
Be sure to focus on the work and not the general biographical information of the artist.
