Hey guys, I have an art history final tomorrow and if you couldn't' guess already I'm pretty desperate for help. Ive been searching for these answers but I still cannot make any sense out of anything that Ive read. I have questions the teacher gave us that will be a portion of the exam tomorrow. I will have to write a paper on these topics in class, and stumped on what to do. If anyone could point out any key points off the top of their head it would be appreciated. Thanks
1 Compare and Contrast the stutctuere, decor, iconography of the pantheon, and haigh sophia.
Heres what I got: There both advanced archetecture for there time, featuring use of light high celing, connection with the divine. The have plain exteriors but decorated interiors. They are both still in function today. Unlike the pantheoen, the haigh sophia was convereted to a mosque.
2 Impact of the crusades and pilgrimages on Romanesque art.
Influences from different areas (not sure exactly where?). high towers for pilgrims to see. relics in churches with decorated insides. specially designed churches for pilgrims to walk through. church center of travel. expansion of monasteries.
And yeah I know this is probably not the place to ask but Id figure I would give it a shot. If anyone could add anything or expand upon something that would be great. I have a lot going on right now, but I really need a decent grade on this for financial reasons blah, blah, blah you know the story.
