Assignment Instructions

Write an essay in which you explain the aesthetic principles expressed in visual arts and describe how they changed from the Baroque period through the early 20th century. What basic features were preserved through the centuries, and which changed dramatically? How do you think artists choose which styles to employ in their own work?

Next, consider how these styles are exemplified in commercial design during our own time. Collect visual images from Web sites and advertisements, like those in the studies, and explain how they incorporate traditional elements of visual design. Are our decisions to purchase items of clothing, jewelry, automobiles, appliances, and services influenced significantly by the visual forms in which they are presented?

Although your paper should offer a general thesis about the use of visual arts, much of the support you offer in its defense will involve details chosen from the specific examples you select. As you write, look for ways to tie everything together with your own view of the role that the visual arts continue to play in our everyday lives.
