Find Me: 16th and 17th century concepts

Your assignment is to find images that demonstrate each of the following terms. Some of these terms we have covered, but some we have not yet so you will have to do some light researching.

For the images I only want graphic, advertising, popular, or contemporary art. I do not want any images that could be associated with fine art, your textbook, or anyone who died before 1990. I want you to see that the art terms we are learning about are still vital and being used today. Good sources include magazines, comic books and graphic novels, stills from games and movies, and the vast internet.

On an index card you are to place a copy of your image with the word, and a brief definition of the word. Make sure to put your name on the back each index card in case they become separated in some way.

Terms:
Arcadian Landscape
Contrapposto
Fete Galante
Genre (the everyday)
Humanism
Mechanical Perspective
Sfumato
Stylized figures
Tenebrism
Vanitas

Due Date:
Due by Monday, February 24th, at the beginning of class. This is a formative grade. If you have figured out some clever and non-cumbersome way of submitting this assignment electronically you may do so, but it is still due by the same date and time.

Assessment:
• Definition 5 pts each card
• Image 5 pts each card

Below is an attachment as an example of the desired product.
