Here are the questions – remember, you must choose TWO from the three below.
1. How did representations of the human body and mind evolve from Renaissance through Contemporary Art?
(A key to answering this question well may be to consider the role of naturalism vs. abstraction.)
2. How have artists used their work to respond to the social, political, and cultural developments of their
worlds? (Consider whether their ability or willingness to respond depends on the world in which they lived.)
3. Color, light, symbolism – these are all tactics that artists have used to create meaning in their art. How have
the uses of color, light, and symbolism changed during the period discussed in this class?
