You will need a CREATIVE TITLE for the paper- this title should reflect very briefly what the
main idea in your paper is it should also include the actual title of the work- this should ONLY be
on your cover page along with the photo of yourself next to the artwork, your name, course number
and name and the semester
The work of art that I visited and chose to research is At the Metropolitan Museum of
Art is a work entitled the Battle Scene of Assyrians Storming a Citadel. This piece currently
resides in the Ancient Near Eastern Art exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, located on
fifth avenue in New York City. The stone relief measures 49 ½ inchesat forty-nine and a half
inches by 33 ½ thirty-three and a half inches and was sculpted using gypsum alabaster. This very
detailed work of art is dated from 704-681 B.C, was found in Mesopotamia and excavated at
Nineveh duringthroughout the Neo-Assyrian period. This paper will start with a detailed
visual analysis of the work and will then place it in its social and cultural contexts (political
ass well?)In the following paragraphs I will discuss the meaning, techniques, and culture of this
piece. PLEASE AVOID USING THE FIRST PERSON IN A FORMAL ANALYSIS
The Battle Scene of Assyrians Storming a Citadel, in my opinion was by far one of the
most comprehensive pieces in the exhibition. There were many amusing pieces within the room
but this one in particular stood out. The attention to detail within the work was what intrigued
and captured my attention the most upon my initial viewing. The technique used to create the
Neo-Assyrian artifact was subtractive i.e. carving. Carving is when the artist is using a
subtractive method meaning he or she is carving into the alabaster canvas?? They did not have
canvas at that time one cannot carve into canvas!!, around the image, and taking away
material so that the image stand out from the surface.is projected forward.
The low relief piece depicts various assemblies of Assyrian soldiers ambushing a
fortressed city- how many figures and how are they placed within the composition? creating
a very hostile infused mood at first glance. The portrayal of a large gate at the very beginning of
the relief takes up about half of the picture spaceimage. Below the gate to the left, thereis a
group of kneelinglt archers shooting arrows towards the enemy. Depicted on the right-hand side
of the armed soldiers, there is another group of soldiers who are shown trudging forward and up
a ramp while using lengthy shields to protect themselves. Just behind them on that very ramp the
armies defense was reinforced with soldiers who carried slings enforcing yet another defense
mechanism. Below them to the bottom right barely in the frame, there are is a group of cadets
sporting crested helmets. Finally. towards the very bottom, another group of soldiers appear to be
carrying slabs to build ramps while others in front of them are laying down palms. (where did
you get all this information you do need to document this very clearly)
I DO NOT SEE A DETAILED VISUAL ANALYSIS AS REQUIRED. Talk about the use of
lines (actual lines and outlines of the figures,) what colors have been used?- discuss in detail what
shapes (geometric or organic rectangular, circles, squares etc.?) forms, textures (real or actual
textures and simulated or illusionistic textures, balance (symmetrical or asymmetrical in the
arrangement of the figures in the composition, visual rhythm -created by repetition of shapes,
colors, lines etc. Use of light and dark contrasts on the figures. Any illusion of depth overlapping
forms and foreshortening used if yes discuss how the illusion of depth was created- use of
Vertical Perspective as one method to suggest depth overlapping forms light and dark
As previously mentioned, this is a low relief piece which means that the artist created it
with intentions to make it long lasting as it is harder for the images to break off if ever they do.
All figures in this composition appear in profile meaning that we are viewing them in side view.
Where the men who are knelt and the men who are on the ramp appear smaller thus further in the
atmosphere and the men carrying the slabs appear closer.
The Battle Scene of Assyrians Storming a Citadel comes from the reign of Sennacherib
who referred to it at the Palace Without Rival. Sennacherib was the King of Assyria from 705
BCE-681 BCE, who was primarily recognized for his military campaigns against Babylon and
Judah thus making the work a political piece. The work is significant because it was the first time
in Assyrian art that the building of a ramp was depicted. Need to include more detail about
this In conclusion the Battle Scene of Assyrians Storming a Citadel is a low relief panel which
depicts the ambush of a guarded city and the event took place in a Neo-Assyrian period.
