1. FULLY IDENTIFY THE WORK.

Artist (provide the full name, Giotto di Bondone, known as Giotto)
Title (titles of works are always capitalized and either italicized or underlined.
Italicized means script NOT, in Italics: “….”
Thus: Lamentation or Lamentation not “Lamentation”.
Medium (what it is made of, the materials and process used): oil on canvas.
Location (where it was made for originally and where it resides today – if different)
Since many paintings and sculptures end up far away from where they were created, the original location is key since it relates to the patron and to the specific commission or project.

PROVIDE HISTORICAL SETTING, GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION, ARTISTIC PERIOD AND PATRONAGE OF THE COMMISSION. .
3. ART TECHNIQUES
DISCUSS MEDIUM, MATERIALS AND ARTISTIC PROCESS USED FOR CREATING THE WORK (Fresco, Oil, Gold Leaf, Sculpture, etc.)
