In Chapters 19 and 20 of the textbook, the Baroque period is discussed in depth. Within that movement, there were varying implications to the art in regions of Italy, Spain, and Northern Europe.
1)Examine these three regions during the Baroque period. Using the questions art historians ask and the words that art historians use, what are some key similarities and differences between the three regions in terms of media (materials), methods, and subjects? Why might these differences between regions exist?
2)In the “Comparing Regions” Discussion, you examined how differences between regions exist and the implications to art created within those regions, specific to the Baroque movement.
Now, select two works, each from different regions within the same time period and movement (other than the Baroque movement).
Below are some examples of regions to explore within a particular movement (choose two regions):
Between the two works of art, what similarities and differences do you see in terms of the media (materials), methods, and subjects? Explain how each work of art is reflective of the movement, yet unique to its region.
