What is the significance of this location?

Just looking at the two images, without the background knowledge, how would you interpret these images? What are they trying to communicate?
Iconography: What is the subject matter? Is the subject easily comprehensible, or does it require knowledge of a specific text or religious doctrine? What are the attributes and symbols that are used to express the subject? Is there a narrative, and if so, how is it conveyed? (Gesture, expression, signs, symbols, etc.)
Style: How is the subject treated formally? Analyze the composition. Consider elements such as color, light, space, and scale. What is the function of accessory figures, objects, or other elements?
Medium: What is the artwork made of? How does that affect the final product? What does the scale of the work tell you?
Location and audience: Where might the work have originally been located? What is the significance of this location? Judging from the location, who might have been its intended audience?
Patronage: Who funded the creation of this work? What might have been the patron’s concerns or motives? How might that have affected the style, content, medium, or location?
Function: What was this work used for? (Stimulate devotion, decorative status, symbol, etc.)? Or what was the intended function/message of the work? What was the social and religious context? Why was this object made at this certain point in history?
Artist and date: Who made the artwork? When and where was it made? How does it compare with other works from the same period? Does it reveal particular qualities attributed to the culture of that period?

Forum discussion on paul klee’s seminal drawing, they’re biting

Forum Discussion on Paul Klee’s Seminal Drawing, They’re Biting
2020 unread replies.2424 replies.
This watercolor and oil on paper work by Paul Klee, entitled “They’re Biting,” 1920, shows a cartoon style scenario of a boy fishing with his dad. The boy has caught a fish, a larger fish is about to take the hook of the father’s line. Following the lines from the fishing rods is a little bit like games found in children’s puzzle books, where the loops and curves must be traced from one symbol to another. Amongst the symbols for fish we also find two recognisable typographic symbols in the full-stop and the exclamation mark. These represent methods of indicating much larger concepts, such as conclusion and surprise, in a very simple abstract way. The exclamation is above a fish that is big enough to swallow both father and son. And what do fish do: big fish eat little fish. A series of events have been set in motion that will reach a final conclusion with the big fish being caught by one of the fishers. The ratio will be reversed and the struggle to land the catch could go ‘either way’.
Could this be seen as a metaphor for a child becoming an adult, the evolution from childhood to manhood? Why do you think the artist chose to paint the lines faintly rather than emphatically? Do you think this lends a childlike quality to the overall work? Must be at least 500 words and have 3 citations minimum.

Something more traditional: greek sculpture, the egyptian pyramids, leonardo da vinci, michelangelo, picasso

This week you will begin working on your Art Appreciation Project by selecting your topic and creating an outline. Please see the Course Project Overview for a comprehensive view of the entire project, which also includes an annotated bibliography and a presentation.
To get started, you will choose an artist or work of art that you enjoy. It does not have to be in our textbook. Here are a few examples of topics students have chosen in the past.
Tattoos as art (focus on a particular tattoo style or tattoo artist)
Comic books and graphic novels as art (focus on a particular artist or character)
Something more traditional: Greek sculpture, the Egyptian Pyramids, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Picasso
Abstract or nonrepresentational art forms; for example, Jackson Pollock
Jewelry, fashion design, everyday objects as art
Automotive design (a certain car model such as a 1965 Mustang)
An unjustly overlooked artist who should be in our textbook, but isn’t
Outlaw artists (graffiti artists such as Banksy)
Digital art
Medieval armor and weaponry
A work of art or artist who changed the world
Please ask your professor for guidance if you are unsure about your topic choice. Your topic must be based on a tangible form of art that can be seen. Please do not choose topics in literature, history, music, or philosophy.
This week you will begin your research presentation project by creating an outline. Please follow this template.
Title of your Presentation: An example is Body Art Really Is Art.
Thesis: This is the main point you wish to make. An example is the following: Although some may dismiss tattoos or even condemn them, a closer look reveals that they are worthy of respect as an art form.
Subject: This is the artist or work(s) of art you will focus on. An example is the following: This presentation will focus on the style of tattoos practiced by the Maoris, the indigenous inhabitants of New Zealand.
Scope of Research: What do you already know? What do you want to find out? An example is the following: I know that the Maoris have practiced tattoo art for hundreds of years. I would like to understand the meaning of the tattoo styles. I am interested in knowing how the Maori tattoo style has influenced tattoos in other cultures. I would also like to know how the Maori feel about the cultural appropriation of their tattoo styles by people from outside the Maori culture.
Scholarly Source: Find one reputable source from the DeVry University Library related to your topic and provide the reference. Tell us in your own words briefly what it is about and how it will be useful to you. For an example, see the Assignment Connection in this week’s lesson.

How did the meaning of the imagery change when it was appropriated?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a art writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
you will be further exploring the topic raised by this week’s discussion forum. However, you will also be writing in depth about at least one specific example of European art that was inspired by another culture. Please discuss the visual similarities and differences between the work of Western art and the source that inspired it. What was the original cultural context of the non-Western art or artifact that was appropriated? How did it inspire a European or American artist? What was happening in each culture when each work was created? How did the meaning of the imagery change when it was appropriated?
I encourage you to write about a new topic for your essay assignment, but if you would like to revisit the topic you’ve chosen for the discussion forum this week, significant additional analysis and research should be apparent in the essay. Here is a list of possible topics but you are not limited to these options. Please note that several of these options refer to artists that you have not yet studied.
Near Eastern art and history: Delacroix’s Death of Sardanapalus, Ingres’ Turkish Bath, etc.)
Islamic architecture and tile mosaics: artists of the Aesthetic movement (for example, Frederic Leighton’s Arab Hall); M. C. Escher’s tesselations and the Alhambra
Chinese art and architecture: “Chinoiserie” in European art, such as Boucher’s The Chinese Garden
Japanese ukiyo-e prints: 19th century painters such as Mary Cassatt, Gauguin, Van Gogh, and Whistler.
Oceanic culture, religion, and art (native peoples of the Pacific Islands and Australia): Gauguin, Die Brücke artists, etc.
African sculptures and tribal masks: Brancusi, Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, and many other early modern artists
Ancient Iberian sculpture: Picasso
Ancient Cycladic art: Brancusi, Giacometti, Hans Arp, Barbara Helpworth, etc.
Mesoamerican art (specifically Chacmool sculptures): Henry Moore’s reclining figures
Navajo sand paintings: Jackson Pollock
Persian and Indian miniature painting: Shahzia Sikander
Your essay should be about three pages (850 to 1000 words), and in it, you should cite your sources according to MLA standards. Attach images if you can but please note that sometimes Canvas causes some formatting problems. Your work will be checked for plagiarism, so please paraphrase carefully, use quotation marks when using direct quotes, and include a works cited.
