a. Spend some time looking closely at the work (it is a very large piece, so it’s good to zoom in on the details), read the description, and look at the Street View of the Met galleries
to see how these works are shown in the gallery.
b. Watch the accompanying video
c. Write a 1-2 page response to what you believe is the most interesting point of this huge mural. Why do you think it is so interesting/important? Why does it stand out for you? What does it represent? Think about both what you learned from the video/museum material as well as what we have learned in class. You can focus on the historical context, the fact that it was removed by the monks, a particular formal detail, or what it represents.
i. Think about color, form, composition, hieratic scale — all the things we have discussed during the semester so far.
