Question Description

1-The “neo-Gothic” styled Woolworth Building in downtown Manhattan was one of the world’s first skyscrapers. Why was this 700 year-old style picked for this modern building? In addition, discuss another architectural example from the 20th century that lifted elements of a much older style. Why was it done? Be sure to include a picture (jpg under 2 MB)!

2-Taken as a group, the Italian painters, Duccio, Simone Martini, the Lorenzetti Brothers, et. al. were practicing their craft on the cusp of a new era in two-dimensional art. While painting space as realistically as possible would seem to be a great advance, what did they lose? Is there a price to be paid for realism?
