compare and contrast essay

Question description

OK I have sent the paper that needs correcting however if you feel it would be easier to do it on two different works of art here are the artist you can choose from:

  1. Select a work of art from the text (use a color image if the original art work is not black & white)
  2.First, spend time looking thoroughly at this work of art, then write an analysis of it. Think in terms of subject, form and content. Look for the elements of design and the principles of organization. How is the artist using shape, color, line, and texture? How is the piece balanced? What rhythms are established? Do we get a sense of movement? How is he or she using these "formal" aspects to help convey a mood, or idea? Also, you may want to find out a little about the artists and the historical period they represent. What do you think was the purpose for making this piece? What do you think they were trying to say?
  3. Find another work that is similar in some way. For example, two still-lifes, portraits, landscapes, or works on a similar theme, like mother and child, the crucifixion, etc. Look carefully at both, compare, and contrast the two. Again, think in terms of form, subject and content. How are they similar? In what ways are they different? Be very specific.
  4. Respond to these works of art, both critically and personally. Do you think they are equally successful as works of art? Why? How do they make you feel? Do you like them? Why or why not? 

Let me give you some works of art from the text:  

Bernini's David 

Zeus of Artemision (also called Poseidan) 

Head of the ruler Sumer

 Head of Oba 

The Thinker 

Pieta by Michelelanglo 

statue of a Kouros

Marisol woman and dog

Marisol the family

Museum Guard

Ron Mueck WIldman

Infantes by Magdalena Abakanowicz 

Backs by Magdalena Abakanowicz 

you can compare and contrast any of these if you fill it would be easier.....MLA style 

. It is not a research assignment but meant to be an exercise in observation. You are to be comparing and contrasting the way the artists use the formal elements and principle of design in the specific pieces you are analyzing. I want to know how and where they use line, shape, texture, value etc. Are they establishing rhythm? How? What kind of balance are they using? What kind of space is involved?
