At this point in the course, you have had some experience with both formal and contextual analysis. You also know what it means to interpret a work of art and support your interpretation with formal and contextual information.

In this writing assignment, you will be comparing two works of art. A comparison is invited since they are both sculptures of the same figure: the biblical David. How was each artwork a product of its time? How were the goals of the two artists similar and different because of the time period and place in which they lived? How were those qualities reflected in the sculptures’ elements (execution, line, texture, proportion, etc.)?

The book we are using for this course is “Reality Through the Arts
