IP 2 – Art

Part 1

When you look at ancient art, particularly ancient sculpture, you see progression in how the body in motion is represented. For this assignment, find 3 different sculptures, all from the ancient period (created between 30,000 BCE and 500 CE), which show progression of how the body is depicted in motion. For example, your first sculpture may be largely stationary, the second shows some motion, while the third shows an active body.

You may choose examples of sculpture from any of the following museums:
A New York art museum
A Paris museum
Select galleries in a Washington, DC museum
A Boston Museum

Paste images of all 3 sculptures into a Word document, and include details about each work: the title of each sculpture, the artist (if known), the year made, the materials used, and the size of the work. Be sure to include a reference for each work, showing which museum it was found in. Present 2 or 3 paragraphs for each work that clearly describe what the viewer sees and the content of each work. Finally, choose 3 adjectives (for each work) that express the core ideas of what the works were intended to communicate or convey to the viewer.

Part 2

Create a simple drawing of each sculpture. Draw a line down each work to indicate the center of balance. Use arrows or lines with arrows to indicate the direction of motion and movement within the sculpture. Scan or photograph your drawings and paste them into the Word document from Part 1. You can insert images into documents by placing the cursor where you want the image to be, going to Insert, then choosing Picture, and selecting the picture from your computer. Be sure to scan or photograph your drawing first and upload it to your computer.

Part 3

For each sculpture that you have chosen, choose a photograph, cartoon, movie poster, or any other image which uses the same stance, or bears remarkable similarity to the sculpture you chose in Part 1. Present at least 1 of these modern-day equivalents, with appropriate comments discussing any relevant details.
