decorative arts history

Building on the two earlier paper assignments, please select one of the objects you analyzed in Paper 1 or Paper 2 to use as the basis for an 8-10 page research paper. Please use the object as a starting point to investigate issues about decorative arts history that the object introduces. You may want to consider the work broadly as a representative example of a type of decorative object. Your discussion may focus on, among other questions, the following: 1) the object as a type; 2) as representative of a particular style in its form and decoration; 3) as the work of a particular designer or craftsperson, or 4) as specific to a time, place, and culture (context). You may also consider the object theoretically, applying a specific conceptual approach to your discussion (for example, the theory of display or viewer response).
