Assignment Topic

Write a biography on an artist whose active period falls within the timeframe of this course. Be as thorough as possible. Please note: Make sure to choose an artist early and gather your resources as we don’t have a lot of information on earlier artists – you may have to choose another artist.

Include the following information:

  1. Artist’s background – well-known personality traits, childhood family life, education and training, marriage, children, important dates like birth, death, major exhibitions, etc.
  2. Career – major successes or failures, well known works, medium the artist worked in, typical subject matter, styles the artist worked in
  3. Lifetime – Major events/technology that occurred in the artist’s lifetime that shaped his/her work
  4. Influences – who influenced the artist and whom the artist influenced; include an example of another artist’s work that you believe was influenced by your chosen artist and describe those characteristics
  5. Conclusion – Why did you choose the artist? What did you learn?
