After researching both artists, you are to write a 500-word comparison and contrast analysis of these two images ‘Napoleon Crossing the Alps by Jacques Louis David’ and Napoleon leading the army over the alps by Kehinde Wiley’.. Then the comparison can include attention to detail such as use of color, subject matter, or iconography. Do the same for contrasting the two pieces – start small. After the foundation is set move on to the analysis and what these comparisons or contrasting material mean – ‘what is the bigger picture here?’ How are the works relevant? Consider, why one artist would wish to show the same subject matter in a different way, how, and when are all questions to ask in the compare and contrast essay.
