Analyzing Historical Art: The American Revolution: Since the beginning of history itself, people have created art that reflects real events. But each artist is a unique individual with his or her own perspective and purpose for each piece of art. This Analyzing Historical Art unit is designed to help you help your students learn to think critically about what they are seeing.
This unit focuses on 18 works by artists Jean Leon Gerome Ferris, John Trumbull, Nathaniel Currier, Currier and Ives, and Emanuel Leutze and show events from the American Revolution. It helps students learn to ask questions about when the painting was made, how many years after the event the painting was created, if the artist used any historical records in creating the painting, and how accurate the painting is. It also helps them brainstorm questions they can ask about details in the painting that can help them examine who was actually present at the event, what kind of clothing they really wore, what the weather and setting was like, and more. It’s a fun way to combine history and art and help your students develop critical thinking skills. 22 pages total.
