The Metropolitan Museum of Art. A late Roman relief and Gothic work. (Essay Sample)


Movement, action, and social relations. Pick one work of late Roman relief and one Gothic from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with at least three figures in it. Discuss in detail (with a description of exemplary elements of the works, as well as a general thesis about how those elements work together) the way bodily interaction is rendered by the carving and molding of the surfaces of the figures and by the general composition putting them in specific relations. From this understanding of how interaction is depicted, explain how these two works reveal different understandings of how human beings relate to each other (do they relate directly to each other, is there some figure (like a god or a Pharaoh) who mediates between different individuals, or is there some reference to a viewer outside of what’s depicted who’s forming the real relations?).
