Copied definitions or phrases from any source (this includes the textbook) will be treated as plagiarism which will result in a 0 for the entire assignment. SafeAssign will be used. Here is an example of the type of response I am looking for on terminology: Let’s pretend the required period related style is Byzantine. Below is my selected image to demonstrate the concepts associated with this period: Note – you are not required to provide images. This is only for demonstration purposes. My entry related to Byzantine art will look like this: Byzantine - Provide your explanation of the characteristics associated with the Byzantine style: Byzantine artists make no attempts to create the illusion of believable space within their imagery. This can be noted in two ways – first, figures generally occupy a generic setting with no visual information to identify a specific location; second, the only visual element of art used to convey space is overlapping. Figures are commonly all placed in the foreground and they are not positioned to even correspond to an existing ground. Another characteristic of Byzantine art can be noted in the representation of the human form; the figures are not modeled to create the illusion of a rounded, volumetric form, instead they appear flat. The artists make no reference to the body beyond the heads, hands and feet. The garments worn by figures make no reference to the human form beneath them. Lastly, the approach to facial features is to create a depiction that is dominated by heavily outlined eyes, which are often sized a bit too large in proportion to the other facial features. You will also need to provide the information related to your selected work of art: Byzantine - Provide the following information for the work of art you are using to demonstrate Byzantine art: Artist's Name: Unknown Title of art work: Presentation Scene: Theodore Metochites presenting the Monastery of Christ in Chora to Christ. Date of art work: 12th century Medium(s) used for work of art: mosaic Byzantine - Provide your description that relates how the concepts associated with the Byzantine style appear in your selected work of art: In the Presentation Scene with Theodore Metochites the Byzantine stylistic characteristics are readily identified. First, Theodore Metochites and Jesus are placed in an ambiguous setting; while Jesus is seated on a throne, which does make reference to furniture, the area that the figures inhabit is simply covered with gold and some text. There is no imagery to reference a specific room, or place. Both figures are placed in the foreground. While the throne Jesus sits on is placed slightly higher in the image so we read the image as Theodore kneeling at the feet of Jesus, the space is still very shallow. Additionally, the model of the monastery held in the hands of Theodore overlaps a portion of the throne so we perceive Theodore as slightly closer. While Theodore appears to kneel firmly on the ground as he is presented in a profile view, the support that Jesus places his feet upon is tilted forward allowing us to view the entire top of his feet. This is also evidence of the Byzantine indifference to depicting their figures in believable settings. The bodies of both figures are not modeled and appear flat; this is most visible in the depiction of Theodore, which relies heavily on the use of outline. Lastly, the emphasis placed upon the eyes of Byzantine figures is most visible in the depiction of Jesus; they are heavily outlined and occupy a disproportionate amount of space in regards to the width of the head. A few things you need to take away from this demonstration: I stick specifically to referencing the visuals, focusing not on the subject matter to demonstrate the characteristics of the Byzantine style, but rather on those aspects that are particular to the way the artists depicted them. The other thing you should notice is that I have provided several specific characteristics associated with this style in my explanation and in my description as to how they appear in my selected work of art. Make sure you do the same. Artstor Museum Search 2 - Assignment Template Please save this document to your computer prior to entering any information.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
