Art History 176 Study Guide 3 I. Identification of images. Give artist, title, medium, date and place (30 points) Identification should be as specific as possible. Names of the artists/architects/sculptors and their work must be correctly spelled to be awarded full points. When it comes to the date, the exact date according to our textbook will be given full points; a date up to 20 years earlier or later will get close to full points; a date one hundred years off the mark will not be given any points; when it comes to place, again try to be specific: you need to know where the work was originally created/placed rather than which museum owns it now (though knowing this is in no way a bad thing); if it is an installation, or part of a larger piece, locate them in their larger context including city and country; remember we are now thinking in terms of countries rather than regions. You will get more or less points depending on the accuracy and precision of your answer.
