Review sheet: Final exam
Gilded Age to the 1940s
All our exams will be based on the following format:
1) Short answer questions (10 points, 20 minutes)
You will be asked questions pertaining to subjects, issues and changes in art from the periods we've addressed, answerable with either a few terms or a few sentences.
2) Multiple choice: "Left, Right, Both, Neither" (12 slides, 60
points, 30 minutes)
You will be shown six pairs of slides. Identify each pair by writing the requested information in the blank (artist, title, and date within five years). For each pair of artworks, you will be given four statements. These statements may concern cultural context, historical information, technique and terminology. You will indicate which slide(s)-the left slide, right slide, both slides, or neither slide-best illustrate(s) the statements. I have hyperlinked below a series of key images that we have studied in class, which you will be expected to identify according to the artist/architect, title, and date within five years.
3) Short essay question (30 points, 30 minutes)
IN YOUR BLUE BOOK, you will be asked to write an essay pertaining to a specific question/series of questions relating to a pair of slides from the image galleries below. Go to a useful article on tips for essay writing
