Time traveling Historian
I was wondering if you can help me get started with an introduction on my humanities paper. It goes as follows:
You are a world-renowned art historian and author with the ability to time travel to any period of history. For your new book, you travel to three periods of your choice to gain a firsthand account of the culture and arts of that time. Your book is a collection of your analyses of artworks based on your firsthand experience in those periods and cultures. While you are time traveling, you select one work of art from each period to analyze in your new book.
The art form (visual art, architecture, literature, or music)
The purpose of the piece
The individual or group responsible for paying for or commissioning the piece
How the piece was made
The meaning of the work and what it expresses or reveals about its creator
The aspects of the civilization and its cultural development that the piece represents
The transhistorical links to the artwork
How art and culture from previous civilizations influenced the piece
How the piece is related to artwork within the same civilization
How the piece still has meaning and value in modern-day cultures
One of the cultures that I chose was Chinese culture and the peice of architecture that I chose was the The Terracotta Warriors.
