Discuss ways in which artists explored modernity. What did modernity mean? How did artists represent the modern world? Consider the form and content of their work as well as the relationship between their work and the context in which it was produced.
Your source material must be based on the required readings of which you should use at least three for your essay. No further research is required. You may wish to supplement points in the readings with further research, however it is not essential.
You may wish to compare and contrast works discussed on the visits and/or in the readings. For example, use works by Picasso (Cubism) and Matisse (Fauvism) to explore contrasting means of representing modernity. Make sure that the main focus of your essay is a study of modernity in which works are examples rather than the main focus.
