    What your written seems. The 2nd paragraph on your contemporary issue requires that the reader is familiar with Lane's artwork. If your teacher suggested Lane then by all means do it. My point is perhaps there are better options for contemporary propaganda. Also if you are set on doing Lane, you have really explored 'HOW,' the propaganda manipulates/ its intended affects - how it serves to challenge/turn opposing views. By this I mean does it appeal to logic? Does it have any linguistic techniques? Colours used? Is there an overall tone and how does this affect the reader? What grade are you just to gauge the level that's expected. Even with a conclusion 400-600 words seems be small. For contemporary propaganda - you can discuss the medias influence or how governments have used propaganda to justify their agenda. For example how does america use propaganda to justify the 'War on Terror,' or how does North Korea manipulate its audience - you could over course compare this to George Orwell's animal farm as a nice parallel.

    I'm in college. Brian Moore was suggested by a girl on here. I wasn't sure what art to go with for today. And honestly I hate this essay. But it was my only option out of the three.

    The minimum is 200 words and I usually write a lot more then this.

    Also you also haven't really explored the intended affect and how Ancient Rome propaganda manipulated citizens. You really just explore the plot. But how did this challenge/appeal/affect Roman citizens. How did their views shift? Depending on how short/concise you want you conclusion to be you could write. Thus, the use of propaganda has extended from ancient societies such as Ancient Rome, to the contemporary world, with individual artists such as Brian Moore. Honestly you need more analysis on the actual manipulation. You've described their works but haven't explored their affect. So you're conclusion is going to be short otherwise you'll just be restating what you already written. Cant really add more than this. Hopefully someone has a deeper understanding of Roman Society than me. Good luck.

    Because propaganda shifts/manipulates perception.

    Romans viewed art as “propaganda”, in general, a message designed to persuade its intended audience to think and behave in a certain manner. Many of its art is considered propaganda, Roman coins, shrines and temples such as, Mars Ultor and countless statues. Written art by Augustus, Virgil and Horace. Publius Vergilius Maro, usually called Virgil or Vergil wrote the Aeneid the greatest piece of Augustan Propaganda in Ancient Rome, today there are artists like Brian Moore who redesign old propaganda posters to reflect today. Your intro is a bit clumsy - it could be more concise Roman leaders utilized propaganda to project their agenda to an expansive and diverse empire, manipulating the audience to think and behave in a certain manner. Roman coins, shrines and temples such as, Mars Ultor and countless statues were all forms of propaganda and it extended to written forms seen in the works of Augustus, Virgil and Horace. In particular Virgil wrote, Aeneid, the greatest piece of Augustan Propaganda in Ancient Rome. Just as the Romans made use of propaganda to shape perception of ordinary citizens, likewise contemporary artists have projected their own opinions through through artwork seen in Brian Moore's graphic posters. This is a discussion. If I was doing it I would extend more on overall effect/limitations and go into more depth as to how it 'legitimized Roman Empire's presence.' Specifically what did the Roman Empire purport? Did it represent peace, fairness equity or a strong rule of law. Did they succeed? Why or why not? Like I said before you just need to expand on your analysis in both paragraphs and perhaps introduce media/government propaganda like North Korea/America. And make a juxtaposition that with the advent of the internet blogs - the individual has the power to challenge or question what the government projects. Just some ideas. Seeing that it is a Uni exam I'd think it would require more detail. Good early draft though!
