Essay Overview:

This assignment asks you to compare the Sistine Chapel ceiling to one of Michelangelo’s works of art. Make sure the work was done between the Early Renaissance: 1400-1492 or High Renaissance: 1492-1560. Your analysis must be a description of the work – using elements of design. Be sure to include a title, the name of the artist and a date for when the work was created. Identify the work as either Southern or Northern Renaissance and explain how it either typifies or defies the conventions of the Renaissance. Please be sure to focus on the work and not on the biological information of the artist.


This paper must be at least three (3) doubled-spaced pages, prepared with one-inch margins. 12- point font in either Times/Times New Roman must be used. MLA formatting is required.
