Art, you will chose a work of art (preferred visual, but literary or musical will work as well). Describe it, give its history and the history of the artist who created it and his relationship to it (if known; if not, tell about the society which produced it), and argue its importance and what it has to say to humans, comparing it to the standards that Tolstoy (I will be posting the text) sets up in “What is art” (and/or what other philosophies/relgions/world views we have read might say on it) on how it expresses the art of being human.
Try to be vivid.
At least 2(-3) pages doubled spaced, justified, 12 point (Times New Roman preferred but not required) of text (not including title page, or bibliography), 6 citations at least to back up your statements/characterizations, not from the same page of the original. With bibliography of the works cited, and a picture (if a visual art object; black and white print out from google images is fine).
