Professor Donahue

Short Essay Question #1

 

INSTRUCTIONS: Read Baxandall’s and Donahue’s articles carefully.  It is helpful to take notes while reading in order to organize your thoughts.   Read through both articles completely and write and outline before you begin your paper.  Do not write your paper as you read (take notes and then write your paper). Answer the prompt in the format of a two-page, double-spaced, typed essay.  Remember to edit and check your so that it reads as nicely as possible.  I recommend reading your work aloud or to a friend, this process often catches many errors. 

 

Your paper should have an introduction with a theses statement (a clear argument).

The body of your paper should provide organized evidence supporting your thesis (why you are right).   Your conclusion should tie it all up. 3-4 pages.  Double Spaced.  12 Point Font.  One Inch Margins. Cite quotations in parenthesis with (Author, page #).

 

PROMPT:

 

Please describe what patrons valued in artworks during the Renaissance?  How did what was important in paintings during the early Renaissance change as the period progressed?  How did the conception of the artist evolve during the period of the Renaissance?

 

What is the stereotype or “myth” for the biography of a “master” like Michelangelo or Leonardo?  How are their biographies presented similarly in The Agony and The Ecstasy and Da Vinci’s Demons.  How does the identity of the “master” serve as a metaphor for Florentine civic identity?

 

Can you think of a contemporary celebrity or other public figure that conforms to the biographical template for the “great artist” advanced by Donahue?
