2) Then, select one Baroque artist from any part of this module. Research this artist’s biography (starting with the National Gallery, Metropolitan, Rijksmuseum or other museum’s online website is a good idea!) 

3) Next, select ONE work by your chosen artist that you think REFLECTS SOME ASPECT OF THE ARTIST’S LIFE/IDENTITY.

In a 2 page responseplease analyze your work of art (formal analysis, iconography, iconology) in terms of HOW it reflects your artist’s biography.  Your thesis sentence for this project will propose a connection between the work and the artist herself.
