and 1 comparison [images provided]
[35 pts each, 70 pts total]
ESSAYS: THREE of
these questions will be on the exam. You will be asked to write on ONE
them. Thumbnails would be provided for questions 1 & 4.
COMPARISONS: You will
be given ONE of these at the exam – specific images will be provided
and displayed for the one chosen.
Compare the Egyptian Pyramid of Djoser (FIG. 3 4)
with the White Temple and Ziggurat, Uruk (FIG. 2 1). In what ways are they
similar? How do they differ? What was the function of each?
What do art images tell us about the relative positions
of Greek and Etruscan women? Select two examples from each culture to illustrate
List three works that you think best represent the
realistic bent of Hellenistic sculptors. What makes them good examples?
Discuss the development of pedimental sculpture from
the point of view of narrative and formal cohesiveness as seen in the pediments
of Corfu (FIG. 5-15), Aegina (FIGS. 5-26 to 5-28), Olympia (FIG. 5-30),
and the Parthenon (FIGS. 5-46 & 5-47).
Compare the Etruscan sarcophagus with the reclining
couple on FIG. 9-4 and the fresco on FIG. 9-8 with the Egyptian funerary
monument from Gizeh shown on 3-13 and the Greek funerary stele on 5-55.
What do these monuments say about relationships between people in
these societies as well as about their ideas toward death?
I will select 3 figures to demonstrate the development
of the female figure in Greek sculpture, one each from the Archaic, the
Classic, and the Hellenistic periods. You will explain how each illustrates
the stylistic characteristics of her period.
