Compare and Contrast the Resurrection,1455 by Dieric Bouts with the Baptism of Christ, early 1450s by Giovanni di Paolo
Write an essay comparing the two paintings. Paper must be a minimum of 500 words.
Here are some of the things you should cover in your essay:
1. Start by briefly discussing the subject of each painting: Are there people in the painting? Is it a portrait of an actual human being? A divine figure? Is it a scene of people—or divine beings—interacting? What are they doing?
Does it include landscape elements? Still life elements?
Is the subject religious? Historic?
2. Now look at the style.
How is the paint applied? Is it smooth? Thick? Can you see brushstrokes?
What kinds of colors are used? What kinds of lines and shapes?
How does the artist use space?
Is the image realistic? Abstract? Idealistic? Or a combination?
3. Discuss the possible function of the artwork. What purpose did the artwork serve? Answering this question may require research.
What do you think the artist was trying to communicate? You certainly can talk about your own ideas about the art, but be careful NOT to project your ideas onto the artist.
4. Finally, compare the two artworks in terms of form, style, function, and cultural context. How are they similar? How do they differ?
5. Conclude with a paragraph that sums up your ideas.
6. Cite your sources in footnotes or in text-notes, as well as a citation page.
