Comparative Study IB / by Kyle Darnell

In December we are going to do a project called Comparative Study for IB Art. In it you will compare and contrast 3 pieces of art by at least 2 different artists from different cultural/time backgrounds. Without going into it too much it can be a bit of a chore, so I want you to start thinking of it now by researching who your artists might be.

Think different  time frames entirely and be sure to include a link. You may need this later. It might be easier to make them completely separate and have absolutely nothing to do with each other. During this project you will make artwork inspired by them, so keep that in mind.


My example would be someone I'm very familiar with, someone I know nothing about, and someone who is diametrically opposed to the first one.

Rembrandt van Rijn - Printmaking and painting from the 1600's

"Black" Maria Martinez - Pueblo Potter from the 1900s.

Damien Hirst - Terrible art person from YBA movement until now.


Seniors, write a quick recap of the one you have already done.
