I need the paper to be persuasive free and on the street Artist Banksy, and if he is significant and/or a vandal?
In this paper you will further develop your capacity for formal analysis by linking visual observations to historical and theoretical commentary, acquired through independent research. In the process, you will finetune practical research skills that can translate to real- world problem-solving in your future classes and/or career.
Select a single artist, group, or collective that was active after 1940. Develop an argument by combining formal analysis with historical study. Rather than addressing your artist’s entire career, craft a clearly defined topic centering on a focused aspect of your artist’s oeuvre (lifetime production). For example, you may choose to write on a single body of work, or you might analyze the artist’s work in relation to a specific theme or historical development. If you are not sure how to get started, I will be glad to help you settle on a focused research topic.
Format and Requirements Sources
The paper must have a minimum of five sources, which need to be books or essays found in the library—research derived directly from the Internet is not acceptable (i.e., no references to Wikipedia) unless you are downloading articles from scholarly journals or publications available online (through JSTOR, for example). In this case, the original article should be cited rather than the web address. If you have questions about the appropriateness of research materials, please speak with me. Proper citation of sources is required; see the attached reference guide. Four out of your five publications should not come from the regular weekly course readings, though these may be used to support your discussion.
The first paragraph of your paper should include a focused thesis statement that posits a meaningful interpretation of the works you selected. In the remainder of your paper, you should support your thesis using two forms of evidence. The first is “visual analysis,” or close observation and description of the artwork. The other is textual evidence: historical facts, artist statements, and arguments made by other art historians, critics, and theorists. This evidence may be quoted and/or paraphrased.
Papers must include images of the works of art you discuss, attached separately at the end of the paper. Each work should be given a reference number (fig. 1, fig. 2, etc.) that is inserted in parentheses into the body of the text. Full captions (artist, title, date, medium) are to be included below each image. The paper should have a title that reflects your thesis. Finally, be sure to include page numbers.
