I need an in depth example in each of the 6 major art forms

Hello, I recently had to write a dissertation in class arguing whether the state is concerned with artistic creation. The prof criticised me for limiting my examples in literature and poetry and recommended me to have at least a solid example in each of the 6 art forms.

I have the literature and poetry covered but I seriously lack knowledge in the other arts. Can you recommend me a philosophically significant example that can be used in as many domains as possible in the other art forms?
Could there be an artist more philosophically worthy than Michelangelo? He is a painter, sculptor and an architect. How about Da Vinci? I can't afford the time to spend on multiple artists except if there's a good resource that you know analysing them.
Should i go with my classical music taste and choose Bach? Could Beethoven be a better choice?
Finally I'm completely ignorant about dancing, I need your help on that one.
I've tried googling but couldn't really settle on the example for each art, that's why I turn to the taste of mefites.
