Relating works of art from 3 different time periods
Choose three works of visual, musical, literary, or theatrical arts, each from different time periods. One work should come from the ancient world one from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance, and one from the Reformation through the contemporary world.
The works of art that you choose must share a common theme, which they respond to or
were inspired by/related to; examples might include war, rulers/leaders/the government,
aspects of entertainment, or women.
Write an essay comparing and contrasting the three works of art. Your essay should
describe the ways in which each example relates to the theme, as experienced or
considered by the culture in which it was produced, and use differences between the
cultures to account for differences in the modes of expression.
