This PowerPoint explores variations in art that have a similar or the same subject.
The first subject for comparision is the Biblical subject of Judith with the head of Holofernes done by Titian, Botticelli, Caravaggio, Gentileschi, and Klmit.
The second is a various still lifes done bye Aertsen, Cézanne, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Lichtenstein.
It is meant to be discussion oriented and at the end of each comparison examples there are questions. A good follow up project is to research two pieces of art that have the same subject (usually something like a Greek myth) and write about them.
