How to write the paper?
Comparison: Since this assignment is about influence and response, your paper MUST be comparative, comparing western artworks and a Chinese art work. Based on your close reading of the chosen Chinese work, you can first compare the style, find out the commonalities, similarities, and differences in relation to the subject of the selected work. Then, discuss the significance of your findings. For this comparison, you need to do extensive research, such as looking into the relevant works in Western art. Which Western art work/s to be used for comparison? It comes from your research.
Viewpoint: With the comparison, you must make a point, which could be an issue for debate or argument. You MUST offer sufficient analyses of the chosen artwork and convincing interpretations to support your opinion.
Title: Although I give you the subject to discuss, you give your paper a title that directly states your topic/opinion and approach. Don’t title it “Final Paper,” and don’t use the same title of the artwork as the title of your paper. If you wish, you can use a subtitle to indicate “what” and “how.”
Note: As for your research, you could consult with and quote from other scholars and provide clear reference information. Since there are lots of materials online, you MUST strictly follow the instruction about the “subject” (what) and “method” (how). Otherwise, an off-topic paper could be considered suspicious and then have difficulty to pass.
