"Along similar lines, a favorite project of theirs is
enlarging an object to the point of abstraction, as Georgia O'Keefe did with

We always like to ask the students to find the "Canneletto's" small

Baroque and/or other massive works from the Pre/Post Renaissance. They are
exquisite and would be missed unless you challenge your students to find them.
They are quite amazing, it must have been a "one haired" brush.
