Choose a print (or series of prints revolving around a theme) by any artist that works primarily in any of the following printmaking methods: etching, engraving (on wood or metal), mezzotint or dry point, relief (linocut or woodcut) or monotype. Once you have chosen an image (or series), write a paper that attempts to analyze the meaning behind the work(s) and their historical significance by thinking about the following questions: o Introducing the work and the artist: o Is the artist a well-known figure? Were they primarily a printmaker or did they work in other art media? o When/how was the image made? o Is this work reflective of their overall body of work (stylistically or thematically) or is it an outlier? o What attracted you to choose this image? o Subject matter: o What is the image depicting? o Is a narrative (story) present? If so, is it a well-known story or event? o Did the artist invent his or her own narrative? If so, why? o Content description/discussion: o Is the narrative or subject straightforward or is it obscure? o When describing the work, what adjectives would you use to describe it? o Are there symbols or metaphors used within the work (if so, what are they and what do they represent)? o Is there a historical or social significance to the work? o Did the artist convey the subject in a convincing way? o Is this work meant to evoke an intellectual or emotional response from the viewer? o Have historians or scholars written about this image (or series)? If so, what do they say? Did reading their thoughts change or strengthen your own opinion (did you see what they see)? o Did the chosen technique enhance the image or do you think it would have worked better as a drawing or painting (describe how you have arrived at your opinion)?
