Publisher's Summary:
For students taking courses in Art History and Art Appreciation. Also appropriate for any course that includes visual communication. Looking and Writing is an introductory guide for students who are engaged in writing a visual analysis for the first time. Although it is written informally with the beginning student in mind, it provides the reader with the technical vocabulary appropriate for visual analysis. Guidelines for the selection, analysis, and presentation of an image found in a museum or gallery setting or an on-line site form the core chapters of the text. Other chapters discuss the use of symbols, the cultural precepts of how we process visual information, suggestions for writing and proofreading an essay and the structure of a proper bibliography.
