Write Essay 2 only: Most cultures have made use of art's narrative function.
Select and fully identify two works of art that visually convey a narrative.  It is recommended that at least one of your choices is from beyond the European tradition, but if you have something else in mind that might add to your research topic, then use it.  Identify the subject of each narrative and discuss the means used to convey the narrative.  They must be on exhibit somewhere in New York and you must visit the actual pieces and photograph them, or sketch them.Write a full essay that includes all identifying information, a description of the story being told, the way the artist chose to tell the story, and the importance of that narrative to the culture in which it was created.
