Part II: Essay (20 points).
First, fully identify each structure above and include artist (if known), title, date, and time period (caption info is not factored into the word count). If you are not sure of the identity of the two structures, do your best to recognize key differences in the styles as discussion in Unit 7 notes. In a well developed essay, compare and contrast the two structures (400 words minimum). Do not discuss one work and then the other, but rather, integrate both structures into your discussion. The comparison analysis should bring in appropriate art terminology whenever possible. After you have compared the two buildings, explain why each building reflects their style and time periods. Cite your sources (even if the textbook) in MLA style.
