One of the most significant elements in learning about art is knowing the context in which they are made. The context, or framework, informs and defines the work and artist. This gives deeper meaning and insight into the purpose of an artwork and the intentions of the artist. Include a summary of the context of the work you chose.
In your peer responses consider the similarities or dissimilarities of the works each of you chose. How do these artworks challenge, shape, or inform your definition and expectations of art? What are some cultural or artistic characteristics or values of the artwork?
