Description

People who lived at the height of the Baroque period, during the 16th century, witnessed the emergence of several of the greatest artists in the history of Western art. In Italy, the artist Bernini was the driving force for a new type of figurative sculpture that was filled with energy and drama. Likewise, his Italian counterpart in painting, Caravaggio, created images that were filled with down-to-earth realism and dramatic use of light.  In fact, artists across Europe began to embrace Baroque form and content in their work. These include the Flemish painter Rubens, the Spanish painter Velasquez, and Dutch painters Vermeer and Rembrandt.
Rembrandt and Caravaggio are considered to be two of the greatest and most influential painters in the history of Western art. Both created their work during the Baroque period, but each artist was from a different geographical region and each was driven to create by different social forces and for different personal reasons. Consider these issues as you write your Discussion post.
In this Discussion, you will post a 550-750 word analysis in which you will examine, compare, and evaluate the work of Caravaggio and Rembrandt. You will watch a high quality video (provided) about each artist, then use these as a basis to write contextual analyses of their work. You will support your key points with ideas and concepts from the reading and videos, as well as your own observations, ideas and insights.

PARAGRAPH ONE: SUBJECT AND OVERALL STYLE
This paragraph should be between  100-150 words. 
Post an image of a painting by both Rembrandt and Caravaggio.
Briefly state, then describe, the subject of each painting. As with Discussion 3 (Formal Analysis), your description should be so clear and specific that the reader can imagine the work of art in their mind as they read. Think about how each work is a good example of the artist’s overall style and approach to painting. 
PARAGRAPH TWO: PERSONAL AND SOCIAL CONTEXT
This paragraph should be between 150-200 words. 
Summarize and discuss the primary personal, religious and social forces that impacted the life and work of both Rembrandt (Holland) and Caravaggio (Italy), motivating each artist to approach their work in such a unique and powerful way.
What was happening in each of the artists’ personal lives?
What religious and/or social developments were taking place in the society around them during the Baroque period?
Who were their patrons? Who commissioned their work and why?
Refer to the notes that you took while watching each video. Focus on the key ideas and concepts from the videos. You will not need to refer to other sources from the internet. 
Helpful Tip! The Counter-Reformation, in Italy, is an example of a religious development.
PARAGRAPH THREE: STYLISTIC SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES
This paragraph should be between 150-200 words. 

In Paragraph Two, you discussed the religious and/or social developments that were taking place during the Baroque period.
In Paragraph Three, you need to summarize and describe the most important stylistic similarities and differences between each work of these two Baroque masters. You need to explain about how the religious and social developments, discussed in paragraph two, are reflected in the style (formal characteristics) of each artist’s work. This is an essential part of writing a contextual analysis.
The reading and study guides for pages 294-298 of Artforms will help reinforce what you learn from the videos.

Helpful Tip! Be sure to apply what you have learned about The Language of Style.
Support your key points with descriptive references to the visual and formal characteristics in each of the works of art you posted. Again, refer to the notes that you took while watching each video. Focus on the key ideas and concepts from the videos and not on other sources from the internet. 
PARAGRAPH FOUR: PREFERENCE AND EVALUATION
This paragraph should be between 150-200 words. 
State your preference. Then, evaluate and thoroughly explain why you prefer the work of the artist you selected over that of the other artist. Support your reasoning with direct references to the artist and painting you selected.
You may wish to consider the following: 
What initial ideas or feelings come to mind after experiencing the work of art?
Do you identify with the work? Based on your life experiences, is it personally relevant to you?
What is it about the work of art that you like the most? The message? The way it was made or composed? 
Are you engaged by the formal characteristics, such as the way the artist used light, color, texture, space, scale, etc?
Do you think your experience of the work is the same as what the artist intended?
