Please choose one of the following writing prompts, watch/read the supplementary materials, and answer the questions, with any other relevant response you may have, in around 500-750 words: 1. Albrecht Dürer’s engraved print St. Jerome in His Study appears prominently in the textbook and the lectures. This print is sometimes discussed as a companion piece to another of his masterpieces, a print entitled Melencholia. The following link to articles and videos produced by the Khan Academy explains the rather complex and very unique iconography of Melencholia, also providing apt comparisons between this print and the St. Jerome image we studied in class. Starting from the article, but using as much of this material as you like, explain the iconography of this image, and how the personification of melancholy herself reveals her frustrating qualities. If you like, you can also explore the comparison between this print and that of St. Jerome. Here is the link to the Khan Academy set of articles and videos: https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/renaissance-reformation/northern/durer/a/durer-melancholia2. Also referred to already this course are the set of 80 etching/aquatint prints by Francisco de Goya entitled Caprichos. You should already have some familiarity with this set. Using that knowledge, or one/both of the useful museum descriptions in the links below, explain Goya’s technique and purpose in creating these. What do the Caprichos say/reveal about humanity? Do you see these phenomena revealed in the world around you? In yourself? in the immediate world? The media? Finally, using your own research, find an image from the Caprichos series that you find particularly interesting, and explain why. Here are two helpful explanatory links, though there is a wealth of information about this on the web: San Jose Museum of Art: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4BwLUM3pJIRocky Mountain PBS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OUmg_w0P_E3. We did not formally study the prints of Andy Warhol in the lectures, but as you are probably aware, he was one of the preeminent silkscreen artists of the twentieth century. Please discuss his interest in portraying celebrity through the portrait of Marilyn Monroe entitled Marilyn Diptych. What appears of have stimulated his interest in reproducing imagery that was already highly reproduced? What, in particular, stands out about his representations of Marilyn Monroe? How did the medium of silkscreen add meaning to this imagery?
