Rubric for Unit 5 Written Assignment
The artistic styles of Neoclassicism and Romanticism seem to be at polar opposites with each other for many reasons. The best example of their differences is in the artwork of one artist: Jacques-Louis David. David is classified as the epitome of Neoclassical art. However, his painting The Death of Marat is undeniably an example of Romanticism. Your task is to compare and contrast the Romantic style of David’s The Death of Marat with another of David’s Neoclassical paintings of your choice (you can use one from the slide presentation or search for another on your own: there are a lot out there!). Historical data is not necessary for this essay: this is another “tell me what you see” critique, using the knowledge you have acquired in deciphering artwork in this class.
