I’m trying to study for my History course and I need some help to understand this question.
As stated in the syllabus, you have one assignment in addition to the discussions and quizzes.
For this assignment you need to choose and study an object from a museum’s website and answer the following three questions in essay formats here. Make sure you provide the link and the image of the object you are writing about and that this selected object is related to one of the civilizations we have discussed in this class. Your favorite Degas painting or Van Gogh, for that matter, would not be accepted as a selected topic. If you are not sure about a website or an object, email me in advance and I will guide you.
Please make sure you read the questions very carefully. Prepare your answers and write them on a piece of paper you log in and attempt to post them. This is a one-time try assignment. This means when you open the assignment you need to be ready to post your answers and click save to either Continue later or submit.
I am giving you the questions here, so you can prepare before submitting.
1. What is the object you are writing about? Make sure to mention the Museum’s website, and identify the object. How is this object related to what you have so far studied in this class. Remember, that your chosen object should be relevant to the civilizations and time-periods we have covered so far.
2. What is the significance of this object? How does it stylistically and artistically relate to its civilization, history and time-period ? What can you learn from it?
3. Compare and contrast your favorite online object with an artwork you have studied in this class. Please describe and identify your second object and draw your conclusions based on their similarities or differences.
