Choose the visual arts (painting, sculpture, architecture, folk art, or any other cultural product with an aesthetic dimension) from one European region in one historical period before 1700, and contextualize how the art relates to its culture. That is, how is the art a product / reflection of its time and place? What aspects of history, politics, religion, etc., were significant in shaping the art? Which piece of art represents this the best? How does the social context help our understanding of the art, and vice versa?
