Final Exam



The Architect's Dream, 1840 by Thomas Cole, The Toledo Museum of Art.

On my final for intro to art history, I would always include this work which the students had not seen before and ask them to identify at least five styles of architecture - it was fun and a good way to end the exam.

The picture is too small to see clearly but I see Greek, Roman (both could be neoclassical) Egyptian and Gothic. What's the fifth?

people's images.

Sorry, they received credit for mentioning things like Greek Doric columns, or Egyptian Lotus-shaped capitals, etc.
