Concepts and modes of expression in human imagination, values, and emotions.

our goal for this task is to discuss and analyze creativity as the continuation of, or as a reaction to, an earlier historical art period. You will choose two historical periods from the list below and discuss the relationships between the periods. You should discuss how one period revived or continued the style and characteristics of the other period or how one period originated in reaction to the other period.



The following is a list of historical art periods you can choose from:

a? Classical

a? Middle ages

a? Renaissance

a? Mannerism

a? Baroque

a? Rococo

a? Neoclassical

a? Romanticism

a? Realism

a? Impressionism

a? Post impressionism

a? Cubism

a? Dadaism

a? Geometric abstraction

a? Pop art

a? Surrealism

a? Harlem Renaissance



Task:



A. Choose two art periods from the list above and write an essay (suggested length of 3a 5 pages) in which you do the following:

1. Describe the earlier historical art period, characteristics of the style, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of this style.

2. Describe the later historical art period, characteristics of the style, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of this style.

3. Analyze the relationship between the historical art periods.

a. Explain similarities or differences between the historical art periods.

b. Explain the purpose for continuing the tradition of the earlier historical art period or deviating from it.

1. Reference at least one specific work of art from each period in your discussion.

2. Explain how the later work relates to the earlier work.

c. Explain the influence the later historical art period had on the art world (i.e., its historical significance).



Note: You should assume that your audience has a basic knowledge of the art periods. You will want to identify both periods in your essay and describe the art periods (time periods, characteristics, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of the styles of the period), but you will want to do so in a way that will allow your readers see how the descriptions support your thesis concerning the relationship between the two art periods.



B. If you choose to use outside sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.
