NAME, TITLE of COURSE
TITLE OF YOUR PAPER (you may change this in the future)
Tell me what your paper is about. What makes your particular artwork special? You are making a thesis statement here, such as“ This Shiva Nataraja is one of the finest examples of its kind. No other Chola dynasty bronze can compare to this one .” If you are comparing that artwork to others, explain why.
Description of the Art Object
Give me a short summary of what the art object (or art objects) is (sculpture, painting, etc.), who made it, how big it is, how old it is, what it is made out of. I want the FORMAL characteristics of the artwork.
Give me a very brief summary of the historical context of the artwork (or artworks) based on the sources you provide from the bibliography.
Now tell me based on the evidence you have presented in your description and the historical context why your thesis statement was right. You must back up your thesis statement with evidence from your description of the art object, as well as its historical context.
You must provide at least three source of information for your research, two of which must be print books. All citations must be in Chicago Style Format.
For example, when citing a book in the bibliography, follow this Chicago Style format:
Author, Title, Editors (if you are citing a book that is a collection of different authors), Volume or Issue (if you are citing a journal or magazine), Date (when it was printed), Place (where it was printed), Publisher
