I need ideas for a piece of artwork to write about.

Okay, I'm definitely not in tune with art. I'm taking a class (basically it's Art History 101). I have to write a paper over the next few weeks on a piece of art. Really, this is a very simple paper. I would just like to find a piece of art that I enjoy and my internet search is so broad right now that I'm just bombarded with...too much. I'm not finding anything I want to commit 5-10 pages to. And I can't seem to come up with any names at the moment either. I just know the mefites can help!
The parameters of the paper: Any painting or sculpture made between 1 AD and 1700 AD. That's it!
So, art fans, who should I be looking at? What pieces make you stare in awe? I know everyone has different tastes but I'd really like a launching pad here. Some names or at least a great page on artists of an era. Thanks so much!
