Choose any 2 artists, each week, for the next 3 weeks. Research online, getting a clear idea of their style and imagery, and the art historical context. Due every Monday.
Comment on the following:
Name them and post a reference to a particular work.
How would you describe their style (visual and physical characteristics) and artistic concerns (ideas about aesthetic presence)?
How do they compare and contrast with each other (you are choosing any 2 each week to comment on and compare/contrast)?
Briefly, what is the art historical context for each (other dominant art styles, ways they built on previous art by others and led to later art by others in the same media)?
(Please note: choose artists that have a reputation in the art historical context, and evaluate that on the basis of whether or not they have had a museum show or are in a collection of an art museum.)
