CRITIQUE PAPER, DUE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28
(Preliminary 2 page summary and bibliography due Monday, October 5)
This paper will focus on one artist, selected from your text, World of Art or websites provided by instructor. Research biographical information on this artist and select TWO works for discussion and analysis. Give the name of the artist, the title, date and medium of the works of art you have chosen.

Your essay must include a paragraph stating the meaning of each work of art and how the artist uses visual elements and design to construct this meaning. Use your critical visual analysis skills: the formal elements of visual design (line, color, light, composition, form).
End your essay with a paragraph that discusses your informed response to the work(s). Consider your interests (hobbies, beliefs, career goals) and life experiences that might affect your choice of theme.
