Art history: Post-Impressionism
Option 1: Research Essay
Compose a 2-3 page, double-spaced essay in which you explore one of the artists we’ve covered in this section of the class in greater depth. Begin by choosing an artist from your week 5, 6, or 7 study guides who you’d like to learn more about. Your paper should focus on images from this artist that we did not study in class. Be sure to include a discussion of how the artist you picked fits into their larger art movement and historical context. You should also include your own opinions and interpretations of the artworks you discuss. Please include images of the works you discuss (or links to images). Use at least three reputable research sources (they can be online sources, as long as they are reputable, or articles and books from the school library). You should cite your sources in MLA form, both in-text as needed and also in a bibliography.
