Question description

Relief of Akhenaten as a sphinx

Your initial research for the Module 8 paper began in Module 6, when you chose an artwork to analyze from one of the following museum websites:

Your chosen artwork should be one that falls within the periods covered by the course (prehistoric to medieval). The museum’s website is a good first stop for researching the artwork.

The actual assignment is as follows

The analysis should begin with an introduction of the artwork that includes the title, date, medium (material from which it is made), and the museum in which it is located. In the body of the paper, you can break down the analysis into sections.

  • One section should be a description of the subject of the work. This logically ties into the purpose the artwork served, which should also be discussed.
  • The essay should include a section on style analysis for the work. Introducing other similar works to compare may help make your case if you are discussing style conventions for the period. When writing about art, it is important to describe details. This helps to guide the reader’s eye, and is essential for reinforcing your general observations.

Think in terms of three to five pages of text, plus a “Works Cited” page. This paper will require research, beyond the museum website, to get a full sense of the piece and its historical context. Include at least five scholarly sources. Use the APA style to set up your paper and cite your research. Please include an illustration of your work in your paper.

The Excelsior College Library can be a huge help. Below is its link to research materials related specifically to art:

If you are new to research or need help with APA formatting, the library also offers this:

Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer. For those assignments that are not written essays and require uploading images or PowerPoint slides, please follow uploading guidelines provided by your instructor.

Check your work and correct any spelling or grammatical errors. When you are ready to submit your work, click “Upload Submission.” Enter the submission title and then click on “Select a file to upload.” Browse your computer, and select your file. Click “Open” and verify the correct file name has appeared next to Submission File. Click on “Continue.” Confirm submission is correct and then click on “Accept Submission & Save.”
