I only need the annotated bibliography based on the met link https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/253373
In that link you will find reputable sources, please find at least one more that it is not from the met museums list, all scholar sources.
The assignment is intended to offer you an opportunity to study an original work of art from the
period covered by the course. Your paper should include both firsthand observations from the work of
art itself and evidence of library research. It is important that you study an original work of art directly
and not rely solely on book illustrations or online images. The assessment and grading of your paper will
be based on the “Criteria for the Evaluation of the Term Paper,” printed below. As stated in the course
description, in addition to the research effort and the quality of the term paper content, formal writing
elements such as clear focus, grammar, organization of ideas, documentation of sources, careful editing,
and ability to follow instructions are considered in assessment and grading. If the Term Paper
Instructions are not clear, you are welcome to ask for clarification. You may also find the book by
Suzanne Hudson and Nancy Noonan-Morrissey, The Art of Writing About Art, helpful in understanding
how to write an Art History research paper. This book is on reserve in the Henry Birnbaum Library.
Before you hand in your paper, please reread these term paper instructions carefully to make sure
that you have followed all of the directions. Art History research tools, that is, information about how to
carry out research and find scholarly sources in the field of Art History, are included in this syllabus,
posted on the Classes site for the course, and will be discussed in class. To make sure that students have
chosen topics, started the assignment early, are on the right track, and have been able to locate scholarly
sources on their chosen topics, students are required to hand in an annotated bibliography for their chosen
term paper topic on Tuesday, November 1. The term paper is due on Tuesday, December 6. In fairness
to students who hand their work in on time, students submitting late papers will be penalized (one point
per business day). Term papers will not be accepted if they are more than a week late. Tuesday,
December 13, is the last day on which late term papers will be accepted.
Structure: Carefully organize the important information and main ideas of your paper. In the first
paragraph, introduce and fully identify your subject, the main themes of your paper, and methods of
analysis (optional). Then, in a logical sequence of well-structured paragraphs that make up the body of
the paper, develop each of the themes you introduced in the first paragraph. Begin with the most
important theme, which may be to explain what is known about the original setting (placement), function,
and patronage of the work of art, that is, the specific historical context for which the work of art was
made. After an analysis of the historical facts surrounding the work, include a straight-forward
identification of the work’s subject matter (you may include information about the work’s textual or
iconographic source, tradition, and the artist’s particular interpretation of the subject matter). Describe
the composition of the work of art and its style (for example, how it has characteristics of an artistic
period style, a regional style, or an artist’s personal style). In analyzing its form, you may also consider
such issues as scale, materials, techniques, and condition, if appropriate. To illustrate specific points and
support your arguments, you are welcome to discuss other works of art as examples and include
illustrations, but do not pad your paper with information that is not directly related to the work of art you
have chosen to write about. The main themes of your paper should always address an issue and make a
point that is directly related to the work of art that is the main subject of your paper. End with a
summation of and conclusion to your research in the final paragraph of your paper. At the end of your
paper, you must include a bibliography section, which should be a list of all significant works consulted.
If you use a Bible, please use the Holy Bible, Douay Rheims Version, which is on reserve for this
course in the library. This version of the Bible can also be found online at: http://www.drbo.org.
Format: The text portion of the papers should run around five to ten pages. Please double space
the text and use Times or Times New Roman 12-point font. Please also double-space the footnotes and
bibliography sections so that there is room for me to make corrections. For footnotes and bibliography,
use the same font size as the text in the body of your paper. For titles of works of art, book titles, and
foreign words (for example, in situ), underline the words or put them in italics. Please number the pages
of your paper beginning with the first page of text. If you include a title page, this page should not have a
number. Do not include images in the body of your text. In a section at the end of your paper, you are
welcome to include illustrations of works of art that you discuss in your paper. To refer to these images
in your text, it is traditional to identify them and include figure numbers in parentheses as follows: (fig.
1), (fig. 2), (fig. 3), etc. To provide information about each image, you may either use captions
underneath each image, or write up a separate list of illustrations.
Each topic will suggest its own emphasis, but in most cases, you will want to devote special
attention to placing the work into its original cultural and historical context and to the analysis of style.
Who commissioned the work and how was it intended to function? How is it representative of the period
in which it was created? To what tradition, school, or movement does it belong? Where does it fit in the
career of the artist (if known)? Is the subject matter based on a textual source? Is the artist’s
interpretation of the subject matter significant? To what extent was it influenced by specific works of
preceding or contemporary artists? To answer some of these questions you will need to do some
additional reading. As a starting point, on the website of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, search for
your topic under “Art” and “The Met Collection.” For many topics, the Metropolitan Museum of Art
website has useful lists of references, that is, a list of books and articles that contain the most significant
scholarly information about the specific work of art. Students are also encouraged to use the resources
listed in the Art History Research Tools section of the syllabus. To find reliable information about the
period in which your work of art was created, use the bibliography in Gardner’s Art Through the Ages
(pp. 456-465) and in the books listed in the syllabus section entitled “Additional Bibliography.” For
more bibliography and useful essays on general subjects, search under key words related to your topic in
the Grove Dictionary of Art, which is now part of Oxford Art Online, a database you can access online
through the Henry Birnbaum Library.
Online sources in Art History are mainly used for searching for and finding bibliographical
references to information in print. Most Art History sites on the internet are generally not scholarly or
reliable and you are discouraged from using them (unless they are online versions of scholarly material
found in print). The Met Collection pages of the Metropolitan Museum of Art website
(https://www.metmuseum.org/art/the-collection) and the online version of the Grove Dictionary of Art
are acceptable and very useful online sources for this assignment. If you use information from the
internet for this paper, you must do the following three things: in a footnote, you must give a correct
citation of the internet source as well as an accurate and complete URL address for the information you
are citing, you must cite the source in your bibliography, and when you submit your term paper to me as
an email attachment, you must also send individual pdf files for each internet sources that you cite in
It is recommended that students use the Henry Birnbaum Library and, if possible, the New York
Public Library at 42nd Street to obtain historical and art historical information about the works of art
listed below. The Nolen Library and the Thomas J. Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
are also very good and the librarians are helpful.
Sources for all particular facts and interpretations must be cited in footnotes or endnotes. One of
the main purposes of writing a research paper is to learn how to put information and ideas into your own
words and to document your sources correctly. To learn this skill, students completing this term paper
assignment are not allowed to quote from secondary sources unless it is absolutely necessary (for
example, if it is necessary for the reader to see an author’s exact wording). For this assignment, you may
use quotation marks to quote from primary sources such as a Biblical text or a 16 th -century altarpiece
contract. Put all information and ideas into your own words and then use footnotes to let your reader
know exactly where to locate the material. Please take note of the following sentence in the MLA
(Modern Language Association) Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, sixth edition, page 70:
“Presenting an author’s exact wording without marking it as a quotation is plagiarism, even if you cite
the source.” For this paper, because I have asked that you do not quote from secondary sources, you
must always use your own words (unless you are quoting from a primary source). Please be very careful
and do not plagiarize or paraphrase too closely from your sources. For this assignment, if you include
ten or more words verbatim from a text – even if you cite your source in a footnote – this constitutes
plagiarism. You must always use a footnote as soon as you introduce information or an idea that is not
your own. If you quote from a primary source, you must also use a footnote. Students who commit
plagiarism in the first version of the paper will fail the assignment and will not have an opportunity to
submit a second version.
For documenting sources, students are required to use the “notes and bibliography system” in the
Chicago Manual of Style. Papers must include footnotes and a bibliography section. You can either put
the footnotes at the bottom of the page (footnotes) or at the end of the paper (endnotes), it’s up to you.
Endnotes should be placed before the bibliography, which belongs at the end of the paper. A summary of
the Chicago Manual of Style forms with examples of footnotes and bibliography forms can be found
More detail: For footnote and bibliography forms, use the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition
(the 16 th edition has been used for these instructions). A copy of this book is on reserve. A handout with
examples of Chicago Manual of Style footnote and bibliography forms will be distributed in class and
posted on the Classes site. For footnotes, use the system called the “notes and bibliography system.” Do
not use parenthetical references in the text or the body of the paper (also described as the “author-date
system”). The first time you cite a source, use the form for a “first note citation in a work without full
bibliography,” which is described in section 14.14 on pp. 660-666. Footnote (or endnote) and
bibliography forms are discussed in chapter 1 of the Chicago Manual of Style. Additional examples of
types of sources and how to cite them are included in chapter 14. For footnotes (or endnotes) use
sections 14.14 to 14.55 on pp. 660-684. Please take special note of how to cite subsequent references,
that is, “shortened citations,” which is described in section 14.14 and 14.18 on pp. 660-665. A complete
bibliography or section entitled “Bibliography,” “Selected Bibliography,” or “Works Consulted” (written
in proper bibliography form) must be included at the end of the paper. In your bibliography, put all of
your sources in one list and use alphabetical order (by the first author’s last name). Do not separate your
bibliography into different sections for books, articles, and online sources. To write a proper
bibliography, use sections 14.56 to 14.280 on pages 684-769 of the Chicago Manual of Style. To cite
Biblical, Classical Greek, or Latin references, use sections 14.252-14.266 on pages 757-762.
Second, you must upload your paper electronically to Turnitin on the Classes site.
Students who commit plagiarism will fail the assignment and will not be granted an opportunity
to rewrite the paper. Papers submitted without proper footnotes, bibliography, and documentation of
online sources may be considered unacceptable and may be returned to students. In fairness to students
who hand their work in on time, students submitting late papers will be penalized (one point per business
day). Term papers will not be accepted if they are more than a week late.
