Writing-Intensive Assignment ART 102

Integrated Synthesis

Considering our class text, The Renaissance Artist at Work, the forum discussions, and the online lectures, briefly summarize the life and trade of a Renaissance artist/artisan. Next, choose an artist from the artists featured on ART21 ( Pick someone that you are interested in (either you like their work aesthetically, you think their concept is interesting, and/or you appreciated their craft), and succinctly describe his or her work, concept, and creation process. Then, synthesize all the information that you have accumulated and articulate differences and similarities.

While there will certainly be differences between artists from these two very distinctive time periods, be careful to consider that not everything has changed.


How things are created

Why they are created

Who is creating





Create a coherent, well-organized argument that is between 3 to 4 pages in length. Refer to the rubric for more information. We will also discuss this paper more, as the due date approaches.

I want you to start thinking about the final assignment. Each gen. ed. class has a 3 to 4 page paper that you have to write, this class is no different. There are instruction, for your paper, below. Read through everything that you need to cover in your paper, and start thinking about what and who you want to write about. This isn't due for a few weeks still, but it would be a good time to start researching. I might suggest trying to find an artist from ART21 sooner, rather than later.

Lastly, (I let this slide more than I would in a face to face class... my apologies) I want you to look over on how to cite using Chicago Manual Style. This is the citing format that is used in Art and Art History. Here are two websites that give you examples on how to cite and Here's the basics: Write in first person, no internal citation, and use footnotes. Microsoft Word will help create the footnotes (In Word, have a document open, go to Insert and click Footnote, the presets are what you need, click okay. You will do this each time you need to cite a quote or a borrowed idea.) Spend this week trying to get a handle on this form of citation... if you are super confused and not sure what to do, email me. I want you to feel comfortable in a few weeks when you have a paper due.

Life and Trade of a Renaissance Artist
During the time of Renaissance there was no difference in the physical appearance of the shops of the artists. These shops were generally in the form of small rooms that opened in the streets. The term artist as a generic term was not always used, a painter was called a painter, a sculptor a sculptor and so on[footnoteRef:1]. The craftsmen use to work in the humble semi public shops and the production of art was a corporation venture. There use to be a Master who was made in charge of all the overall design, the iconographic interpretation by Giotto, Donatello indicates that the genesis of the work and its development were seen as the product of master’s mind[footnoteRef:2]. Under the Master’s work the Apprentices who use to join the shops in their early teens and they use to get small salary. The latter use to assist the Master in preparing the material and also in executing the work after the design is formulated. The structure and the working of each shop depended upon the particular specialization. The renaissance artists were happy to paint almost anything and there was no hierarchy of paintings.
