History of art

    • Thread Starter

    I've been given a 30 mark question for history of art - Discuss how the use of materials, techniques and processes has affected the appearance of one painting and one sculpture. The painting I'm using is The Annunciation by Fra Angelico and the sculpture is David by Donatello. I have spent ages researching but I still can't seem to find anything more than 100 words on each, I have no idea what to write ? How can I write more on this?

    I don't do history of art but there seems like you have a lot of stuff to write about. Identify what the materials techniques and processes are in each and then research what they are, what they do, why they're used and what impact they have. Think of other examples in which they have been used and to what effect.
