    1. What Italian Baroque characteristic does David by Gianlorenzo Bernini exhibit? (Points: 3) The sculpture engages the viewer by breaking into the viewer's space. The sculpture makes a complete departure from Classical and Renaissance sculpture. The sculpture's main purpose was to idealize the beauty of the human form. The sculpture's pose and facial features are calm and reserved. Question 2. 2. What Italian Baroque convention do Caravaggio's paintings exhibit? (Points: 3) They depict narrative historical themes. They focus on religious scenes with idealized figures. Figures are foreshortened to create a sense of flattened space. Their dramatic compositions focus on realism. Question 3. 3. What innovative and extreme lighting technique did Italian Baroque artist Caravaggio use in his paintings? (Points: 3) contrapposto atmospheric perspective tenebrism foreshortening Question 4. 4. Which phrase best describes a characteristic of the paintings of French Baroque artist Nicolas Poussin? (Points: 3) the depiction of figures and landscapes from the artist's imagination the depiction of a narrative subject within an organized, idealized landscape the rejection of Classical Greek and Roman figurative and landscape ideals the nearly photographic recording of figures within a landscape Question 5. 5. Which sentence best describes a technique that Spanish Baroque artist Diego Velázquez used in his paintings? (Points: 3) Velázquez used the circle as an organizing structure in which to place all of the figures and objects. Velázquez used loose brushstrokes for the figures and smooth, precise brushstrokes for the background. Velázquez preferred to work spontaneously rather than carefully plan out his compositions. Velázquez captured many middle tones between dark and light to create structure and accentuate color. Question 6. 6. How did Baroque artist Rembrandt of the Netherlands apply paint to a canvas? (Points: 3) Rembrandt brushed the paint on smoothly to create solid-looking figures. Rembrandt vigorously applied paint to quickly capture a single moment in time. Rembrandt carefully applied a thin coat of paint to create imperceptible changes in tonal values. Rembrandt applied expressive strokes of thick paint by using the impasto technique. Question 7. 7. What Rococo characteristic did French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau use in his paintings? (Points: 3) the use of neutral colors to enhance the subject's serious nature the use of strong variations of color the depiction of aristocrats within idyllic landscapes the depiction of figures with no visible brushstrokes Question 8. 8. How did French artist Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin use Naturalist conventions in his paintings? (Points: 3) Chardin depicted ordinary people and activities with a sense of realism. Chardin used delicate, lively brushwork to depict aristocratic genre scenes. Chardin incorporated the tenebrism technique developed by Caravaggio. Chardin used theatrical lighting to add to the drama of the scene. Question 9. 9. What features show that Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is an example of Neoclassical architecture? (Points: 3) Monticello's design shows that Jefferson rejected Classical conventions in favor of new ideas. Monticello has an asymmetrical floor plan and many ornate details. Monticello incorporates architectural moldings that were reclaimed from ancient Roman buildings. Monticello incorporates architectural features of Greek and Roman architecture.
