Questions Drawing 2

1. Why must we rely on an artist's drawing for details of the inauguration ceremony rather than photographs? (You may need to refer to Reading 1). Do you think this drawing could be an accurate representation of the actual event? Why or why not?

2. Describe the scene in the drawing. How does it compare to the description presented in Reading 1?

3. How does this inauguration ceremony compare to those you have seen on television, in videos, or in photographs?

* The drawing on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Drawing 2, but be aware that the file will take as much as 33 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
