Section 2: European Art (1000 AD–present)


There are seven questions in this section. You must answer one.


Q8. The Romanesque and Gothic periods


The Romanesque and Gothic periods are the topics in Q8. It had been a three-part question up to the last few years, but most recently it only had two parts, (a) and (b). The question is sometimes illustrated. You can be asked about a specific building or sculpture, or sometimes asked to name a work of your own choice.


* In part (a) you may be asked to describe the work under headings. These can vary


a lot depending on whether the question is on architecture or sculpture. The headings could be the exterior and interior of a building or the subject, composition and function of a sculpture.


* In part (b) you might be asked for the main features of Romanesque or Gothic


architecture, the function of sculpture, or even how stained glass is made.


Q9. Late Gothic to High Renaissance artists


Late Gothic to High Renaissance artists can be part of Q9. It is generally about a named artist, like Giotto, and the artists of the Quattrocento, but not always. It is sometimes illustrated.


In recent years this has become a two-part question. You must answer (a) and (b).


* In part (a) you describe and discuss the work under headings like subject matter, composition,


use of perspective, colour, treatment of the human figure and technique.


472 APPRECIATING ART: SECTION 4


* In part (b) you can be asked to describe another work by the artist. Give some general


information about the artist or describe the work of another artist from the same time.


Q10. The High Renaissance


The High Renaissance is usually the topic of Q10. Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael come up frequently, but not always. It is frequently illustrated.


This has recently been a two-part question. You must answer (a) and (b).


* In part (a) you discuss the work under headings. Composition, form, technique, use


of materials, treatment of the human figure, light, colour and subject matter are among the headings offered.


* In part (b) you name and describe another work by the artist.


Q11. The 17th and 18th centuries


The 17th and 18th centuries were the topics of Q11 in 2015 and 2016. Before that, this was a question on Impressionism. Earlier again, it was a list of artists from the 13th to the 20th centuries. The list seems to have moved to the end of the section in recent years.


In the last few years this question has been illustrated and the name of the artist and the title of the work have been given.


This is a two-part question. You must answer (a) and (b).


* In part (a) you describe and discuss the work under headings. Subject, composition, style,


light and colour have all been offered.


* In part (b) you name and briefly describe another work by the artist.
