After reading Baxandall’s “Conditions of Trade,” please answer the following questions in complete sentences. When quoting or refering to a specific part of the text (even when paraphrasing), please parenthetically cite the page number.
- Baxandall argues that what patrons wanted from artists changed over time. What does he say clients (in our class we’ll use the more common term patrons) were more interested at the beginning of the 1400s? What were they more interested at the end of the 1400s?
- What type(s) of evidence does Baxandall use to support his argument? Please give a few specific examples.
- What did you think of his argument? And why? Also, did it make you think differently about the relationship of artists and patrons/clients than you had assumed before being in class?
I have attached pdf of this reading you can look that and might help to answer the question. My teacher does not want any other source besides this attached file. so make sure you provide me all the answers from that attach pdf.
