In Week 5, you will design an art gallery specific to a movement of your choice. To prepare for this project, this week you will examine the five movements listed below. To research the movements that we have not yet discussed in class, you will need to look ahead in your textbook and/or search for sources in the Ashford University Library.

In your paper, outline the following information for each of the five movements:

  • Identify two works of art that incorporate the significant characteristics of the time period.

Use at least two scholarly sources to support your points. The ProQuest and JSTOR databases in the Ashford Online Library are helpful sources of information, as is the ART101 Museum and Images Website document located in your classroom. From the library home page select Find Articles and More and then select Databases A – Z. From the list of letters, you will choose the ā€œJā€ link for JSTOR or ā€œPā€ for ProQuest.
