Question Description

Project Overview:

Choose a work of art that you would like to learn more about. Study the artist. Describe the medium (or media) used. Review the size/dimensions of the work. The year in which it was created. The artist’s influences, the theme of their work, what they are/were trying to express through it. Consider concepts such as symbolism – if there is any – the purpose of the work, what the work “does”, etc. Does it challenge our/your beliefs? Does it shock? Does it touch you/us emotionally? Or is it purely a work of personal self-expression? If it is self-expression, explain what is being expressed. These considerations are simply a starting point. You are encouraged to think about our discussion from our first class, What is Art? Make use of proper terminology to describe and interpret the work (see lecture on The Principles and Elements of Design for details on terms).

Topic:

You should choose either a modern artist, modern theme (around 1860-1960) or

Contemporary (after 1960-present). This project must analyze a work of visual art (i.e.

painting, sculpture, architecture or any form which can be analyzed using the terms discussed in chapters two and three). Photography, performance art, fashion, time-based work – such as film or video – are all acceptable, but your analysis must focus on the visual elements. Be sure to verify your topic with me so we are in agreement that it is acceptable.

Format/Length/Evidence:

This paper must be at least four (4) doubled-spaced pages, prepared with one-inch margins. 12-point font in either Times/Times New Roman must be used. MLA formatting is required. At least ONE credentialed, secondary source should be included. This source must be properly

cited. Be advised, this submission is subject to Turn-It-In anti-plagiarism software. Remember to also include citations and references, any sources used.

Oskar Kokoschka – Franz Hauer Portrait
Introduction
Oscar Kokoschka was an expressionist artist who lived from 1886 to 1980. Kokoschka is
known for many famous paintings that reflected the time that he lived in by expressing the inside
on the outside in what he referred to as semblance of things (Timpano 2). Some of these were
self-portraits. During his prime time, he championed avant-garde art that primarily focused on
contemporary themes. One such piece of art is the Franz Hauer portrait. The portrait was painted
by Kokoschka in 1913 just before the First World War began. Additionally, this piece of art was
done in Austria which was responsible for the commencement of World War 1 through its
declaration of war on Serbia under the Austro-Hungary Empire. The analysis of the Franz Hauer
portrait is important for the better understanding of the artist as well as the circumstances that
surrounded the time of the painting.
