Art Criticism Essay
12pt Times New Roman
Please choose one work of art from our textbook and write a critical review of it. You may write about it in any way that you like as long as you identify the artist, title, and medium which is solely for the purpose of me knowing what artwork you are referring to.
There are certain things I want you to write about in your essay:
Describe how its materials, composition and placement work or do not work. Speak about it in a contextual sense. A way to go about this is to identify what the artist is trying to communicate and why. What is the artist responding to? Is he/she successful in communicating that response?
