The essay should contain a description of the artwork, including the appearance of the art; its subject matter and any iconography, metaphor, and or symbolism; an analysis of how the visual form shapes the content or meaning of the subject and a comprehensive interpretation of the overall meaning of the artwork in relation to context.
