There will be about 6 minutes to be able to do this for each artwork. The information you need to know on each work of art is: o Data on the materials and dimensions of the artwork o Patrons who requested the artwork o Who the artist was o The style of the work (visual elements, principles of composition) o Subject (who the art was representing, the story or the type of figures in the piece) o The function or purpose of the artwork o The message it should convey to the viewer These answers can be a few words to a sentence. Only 2 out of the following 4 works of art will appear on the exam: Oratory of Galla Placidia in Ravenna Year: 425-426 Pages: 228-229  The building was made in rememberance of St. Lawrence who was a martyr. The building is now named after Galla Placidia who was the daughter of a Gothic king and her family was presumed to have graves there.  The building is cross shaped (cruciform), barrel vault on each arm of the cross. In the square space at the middle of the cross is the dome in the inside. This building is very well designed in the inside the designers wanted anyone who would enter to feel like they were entering into the spiritual world. The building has marble sheathing on the walls and there are also geometric patterns along the arches and vaults in the ceiling. There is a small fountain with doves resting beside it representing life in heaven forever.  Oratory is a small chapel. To the left of the Oratory of Galla Placidia (Figure 7-19) has a space with the gospel books in it and this is a symbol of how St. Lawrence gave his life as a martyr.  Figure 7-20 is Jesus and he is shown in glory and all power here. Church of San Vitale in Ravenna Year: 547 Pages: 238-242  This structure started off as a martyrium or a church that is placed over a martyr’s grave. It was dedicated to martyr St. Vitalis.  The design of this structure is an octagon shape which means there are 8 walls. There is two galleries, a sanctuary, vaults, and an ambulatory inside.  In the dome is Jesus who is offering gifts and receiving gifts from the angles.  Both Emperor Justinian (representing purity of the alter) and Empress Theodora (shows a theme of offering) are represented on the North and South Walls of the Apse. The Great Mosque in Cordoba Began in 785-1031 Pages: 272-273  A former Ymayyad dynasty survivor named Ad al-Rahman I escaped to Spain and found a group of Muslim settlers to establish rule over. They built this church and it was expanded over the years.  The area of the building is about 620ft x 460ft and 1/3 of that is the courtyard.  There are repeated columns inside with double flying arches. These arches are known as horseshoe arches from the Roman and Byzantine, where they alternate the red and white colors in the curve. The columns were reused from a Christian church that used to be in the same place.  The area Cordoba started to become the place to be for the arts, and were becoming better than the Christian Europeans in science, literature and philosophy.  Ad al-Rahman III became caliph in 929 and he and his son made the mosque a symbol of patronage and luxury.  Maqsura is an enclosure in front of the mihrab and this is saved for the ruler and other high up officials. This was usually the focal point of a mosque.  The minaret is a tower that people who are faithful were called to prayer and this is a symbol of Islam’s presence in the city.  The qibla wall is the wall that is closest to the prayer hall of Mecca. Represents a holy place Sultan Hasan Madrasa-Mausoleum-Mosque Complex in Cairo Year: 1356-1363 Pages: 277-279  This mosque shows wealth and status and was made in the mid fourteenth century by the Mamluk Sultan Hasan.  Has a four-iwan plan which is a classroom, and then other rooms.  The qibla iwan was the prayer hall. There was marble used, arches, columns. Lots of text and foliage along the walls to represent paradise with faith.  There was a tomb for Sultan Hasan that was very richly decorated.  There was much lighting used in this space like lamps, candles, and glass. Glass became a great business in Egypt and Syria because of this. Part 3: This part will be multiple choice questions and there will be 25 of them. On the study guide the professor gave us there is a list of vocabulary terms from the book. I will be taking those terms and giving you the page number they are found on and what piece of art they are referring to since that is a lot that was on the last test.  Menorah – pg. 186 represented in the “Spoils From the Temple in Jerusalem”  Orant – pg. 220 and this could be figures with their arms out in prayer and they could be many different religions depending on when the person was doing it  Good Shepherd – pg. 222 represented by the sculpture of Christ  Codex – pg. 245 and this is similar to a book and was done instead of scrolls Spolia- pg. 272 reused the columns from a Christian church  Pendentive - pg. 236 and this is in The Church of Hagia Sophia  Icon – pg. 246 such as the Virgin and Child with Saints and Angels  Pantokrator –pg. 241 Christ Enthroned, Flanked by Angels, St. Vitalis, and Bishop Ecclesius Figure 8-7  Catacomb –pg. 215 from Roman cemetery and shown in figure 7-1 or Cubiculum of Leonis, Catacomb of Commodilla  Cathedral –pg. 220 represented by the throne of bishop in Jewish religion  Lunette – pg. 221 represented by the Good Shepherd with Adam and Eve After the Fall (Figure 7-6)  Narthex – pg. 220 the entrance of the synagogue  Ambulatory – pg. 224 from the Church of Santa Sabina in Rome  Apse – pg. 192 first found in the book, but usually found in Christian Churches  Transept- g. 225 basilica of Old St. Peter’s in Rome  Squinch- pg. 238 used in a dome  Ivory diptych – pg. 255 The Harbaville Triptych  Iconoclasm- 248 in the Easter Church in 726 Icons were banned  Iconophiles- pg. 247 such as Crucifixion and Iconoclasts  Vellum- pg. 245 used for manuscripts and in the place of parchment paper  Psalter –pg. 256 like David composing the Psalms Figure 8-27  Minbar –pg. 272 from the Great Mosque of Cordoba  Arabesque –pg. 267 used by Islamic artists and was a design for scrolling vines  Mirhab –pg. 272 used in the Great Mosque of Cordoba  Kufic – pg. 275 like the artwork Page from the Qur’an  Lusterware –pg. 277 like the Lusterware Jar  Madrasa- pg. 277 architecture especially the Mosque for Sultan Hasan  Ablaq masonry- pg. 268 in the Ornament section or Technique box  muqarnas—pg. 280 from the Court of the Lions
