2. Examples: How did the Naramsin Stela or David's Napoleon Crossing the St Bernard function as a piece of propaganda within the culture ?
What was the role of art in Eighteenth-century France through an analysis of the salons and The Academy?
Choose a piece or pieces you are interested in, fascinated by, or would like to learn more about.
