The Thinker was commissioned by the Museum of Decorative Art in 1880 for doors at the entrance to the museum. Originally meant to be a man pondering the massive "Gates of Hell," The Thinker evolved to become a larger than life stand-alone piece. This piece of art captures the human imagination so much that The Thinker has entered the public consciousness as a symbol of intellect and academia.

Installation Art

This art is meant to completely take up the space it is being shown in, to the point where the show rom is part of the piece. It is permanently connected. The slides are impressive sculptures in their own right, and you don't have to hurtle down them to appreciate this artwork. What interests Höller, however, is both the visual spectacle of watching people sliding and the 'inner spectacle' experienced by the sliders themselves, the state of simultaneous delight and anxiety that you enter as you descend.

Visit the following websites and explore the collections of Ancient Art there:

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • The Louvre Museum
  • The Smithsonian Institution Freer Gallery and Sackler Gallery

See the Course Materials List for access to these sites.

From the gallery websites listed above, and available through the Course Materials List, select two works of art from any ancient culture. Using the terminology and concepts you are learning for evaluating art, compare and contrast the two works including materials used, style, meaning, symbolism, and any other aesthetic issues. Explain how the works of art fit into the context of the time period. Keep in mind that only art works that fit into the period of Ancient Art (created between 30,000 BCE- 500 CE) will be accepted.
