In addition to the books on reserve at Snell, the databases listed below are good places to begin your scholarly research. Don't worry when you find contradictory information. Some artists have had generations of people interpreting their narratives to fit their own needs. Instead think about what each conflicting narrative suggests and try to find the common ground between them. Also check area libraries.

As you do your research, read critically. Is your author convincing? What and how does the author use for evidence? Is the author presenting new information or simply summarizing previous work? What questions are left unanswered? Research your topic in depth. Choose topics or artists not covered in class. Your goal is to contribute to the content of the course with new material. If you are working on a specific artist, include a brief summary of personal and professional background. Explain innovative work, working method, aesthetic intentions. What movement is your artist associated with and how? How does the work relate to other artists and movements? What major themes are you discussing? Have a clear overall point to make about why your artist and the work are important. Summarize interesting critiques you’ve researched. Do you agree with them? Use your visual/formal analysis skills when describing specific works to illustrate your points. Are any works in local museums or exhibits? Have you looked at object files or archives in these locations? If a local museum has work related to your topic, you must include it in your paper. Summarize what you have learned, go into depth on certain aspects of your research. This will enable you to do research in related fields like psychology, history, science, literature, etc. Do your own, original analysis of the visuals. If you are writing about a movement or event, the same suggestions apply. Think about balance. If some aspect of your topic was covered in class, you may want to do a brief review and then move onto new material in your paper. The substance of your work should be research of new topics. DO NOT BE VAGUE OR REPETITIOUS and AVOID PLATITUDES. If you need help with research sources, please consult the reference librarian at Snell. If you need help with writing, make appointments with the Teaching Assistant or the Writing Center early. Students working closely with editors, must turn in their original paper as well as the final edited paper. Format. There is no particular format required for the papers (Chicago or MLA suggested). Use a standard format preferred by your profession. Papers should be typed, double-spaced with page numbers and stapled. Fancy covers are not necessary; name, date, course and title on the first page. Illustrations, placed at the end of the paper, must be labeled with artist, title and date, and may be printed in black and white. 2 Plagiarism/Citation. All work must comply with Northeastern University’s Code of Student Conduct. Plagiarism, lack of proper documentation, or academic dishonesty will result in a failing final grade. Lack of proper documentation includes lack of footnotes and is considered plagiarism. Cases of plagiarism will be referred to the OSSCR office and possibly result in disciplinary action. If you have written a paper on your topic in a previous course, be sure that this paper is a different one and pursues an original trajectory. How to get started on a research paper. 1. List 10 things you think you already know about your topic. Start with the basics. Nothing is too obvious to state. It’s OK if you learn later, after further research, that you were wrong about some things, or if you change your mind. 2. Write 20 questions about your topic. As you look at art you already know, what questions come to mind? What new things have you discovered? 3. Mark each question with the type of source that will best answer it. Some types of sources include: reference works (encyclopedia, dictionary, atlas, etc.), books (anthologies, textbooks, biographies, long-form journalism, biographies, etc.), academic journal articles (must be peer-reviewed), films (especially documentaries), periodicals (newspapers, magazines), discipline-specific websites and other electronic sources. 4. Do your own in-depth visual analysis of the images you choose to illustrate your paper. Your formal analysis should be personal. Grading Criteria for Research Papers (see rubric on Blackboard) An “A” paper demonstrates a superior understanding of the topic, provides an original and thoughtful response to the material in question, articulates a clear and convincing argument supported by careful analysis of evidence, is well organized, clearly written and free of grammatical and typographical errors. 3 A “B” paper demonstrates a competent understanding of the topic, presents a logical argument, may have minor organizational problems or lack of specific analysis; few or no grammatical or typographical errors. A “C” paper meets the minimum requirements, lacks clarity and deeper analysis; may reflect inadequate preparation and may have grammatical and typographical errors. Fails to present a logical thesis. A “D” paper fails to meet minimum requirements for the assignment (for example, too short, no illustrations). It may also fail to present a logical argument, lack clarity, contain errors and reflect inadequate or careless preparation. An “F” paper falls significantly short of the minimum requirements or is missing (more than one day late), or lacks documentation (lacks footnotes or annotated bibliography). 4 ...

Abstract
The conception of art and beauty is broad and diverse, based on different schools of thought. Art
takes many various forms such as the representation of nature, artists inner life, intuition, hidden
nature, beauty, intent, style, subjective, function and consequence, and so forth. On the one hand,
although beauty possesses specific rational properties such as symmetry, order and proportion, it
can not be explained through reason alone but requires a person to experience it. Therefore other
than simply being pretty, beauty in art is a product of our experience and could raise a mixture of
feelings such as pleasure, suffering, grief, rage and joy. This paper seeks to show that art and
beauty standard influence each other. By examining works of art from the modern era (19001940), the paper aims to assess the various characteristics that marked the period, look at the
conception of art and beauty and finally discuss how art and beauty standards influence each
other. The influence of art and beauty standards on each other will be analyzed by looking at the
Large Bathers from post-impressionist Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), Les Demoiselles d'Avignon
(1907) by Cubist Pablo Picasso and Water Lilies (Nymphéas) (1897-1926) by impressionist
Claude Monet. The paper concludes that while the conception of art and beauty can be perceived
in diverse ways based on the school of thought movement, art and beauty standard influence
each other. Thus, even though the artists adhered to different convections and adopted different
styles, they were able to capture their audience, provoke and inspire them demonstrating the
influence of art and beauty standards have on each other.

The concepts of art and beauty have received a considerable amount of interest and
discourse as critiques debate the relationships and the influence they have on each other. The
Aesthetic branch of philosophy since its inception in the 18th century has played a prominent role
in examining art, aesthetics and beauty. When exploring the concept of beauty, the philosophers
postulated that it could not be merely explained by reason. They argued that although beauty
possessed intellectual properties which ranged from symmetry, order and proportion, it could not
be explained through reason alone but required a person to experience it (Bruyn, 2002). As such
in line with the classic adage, the philosophers simply said that beauty was subjective and in the
eye of the one who beheld it. It was only through intuition that it could be understood as well as
experienced through feelings and human emotions. Further, the experience and perception that a
person has of beauty are subjective based on cultural influences and the dictates of the era. The
era also determines the ideas of what is aesthetics.
Citing the wisdom of Immanuel Kant, Bruyn (2002) asserts that beauty is independent
and that cannot be attached to any particular figure. As a product of our experience, it could raise
a mixture of feelings such as pleasure, suffering, grief, rage and joy. On the other hand, Nieters
(2020) defines art as an expression of the desires, intuitions, emotions and thoughts of the artists.
Art helps them to share their world experience of the world through an expression of their
personality better than words could.
This paper seeks to show that art and beauty standard influence each other. This will be
done by assessing works of art from the Modern Art period (1900-1940) and see how art and the
standards of beauty influenced each other. The paper will first examine modern art (1900-1940)
assessing the various characteristics that marked the period, look at the conception of art, beauty
and finally discuss how art and beauty standards influence each other.

Modern Art 1900-1940
The birth of modern art symbolized a break from the traditions and academic forms that
had been observed in the 18th and earlier parts of the 19th centuries. Modern artists, therefore,
sought to create art painting that embodied new bold methods, themes as well as materials.
Other than the fine art of paintings, architecture and sculpture were also affected. The era of
modern art gave rise to numerous movements which lasted for almost a century. Some of these
movements include Impressionism, post-impressionism, colourism/ Fauvism, expressionist art,
Art Nouveau, cubism, art deco, Surrealism, and so forth (Encyclopedia of Art, n. dc).
These movements were quite diverse in their approach that it was challenging to identify
any characteristics that could have been unifying. However, a comparison of works of art from
this era with their predecessors as well as their successors shows that this group believed in the
value of their craft. This contrasted from the traditionalist who lived in an era governed by
Christian value and as such, assumed that their art had value. On the other hand, the postmodernist artists do not believe in the intrinsic value of the art (Encyclopedia of Art, n. dc).
There are intrinsic characteristics which distinguished modern art despite the lack of a
single defining characteristic. These include the fact that it brought to the fore new forms of art
such as collage, performance art, land art, animation, kinetic art various forms of assemblage art,
and so forth. The artists also made use of new types of material such as fixing elements to their
works and junk art
This era was also marked by a potent colour utility in such movements as expressionism
and Fauvism. The artists also came up with new techniques such as automatic drawing,
Chromolithography, action painting, silkscreen printing as well as Benday dots". Other art
