  1. 1. Periods 1, 2, 3 Slides<br />Use these slides to start a discussion. <br />You need to make at least two developed <br />comments supporting your statement of a peer’s <br />work. Look at the slides and add on to their ideas or <br />state if you disagree and why. Be polite and valid<br />in your statement. Please which painting and slide <br />you are commenting on. A response of “I agree” or <br />That’s awesome” will not fulfill the assignment. <br />
  2. 2. The Birth of Venus by Botticelli (1486)<br />The focus is the Venus. Ocean is less emphasized.<br />Chronos’s genitals fell into the ocean and she was born<br />The focus is that Zeus induced the birth of Venus by cutting the genitals of chronos.<br />
  3. 3. Minotaur Caressing the Hand of a Sleeping Girl with his Face by Pablo Picasso<br />This painting draws an illusion to Theseus and the Minotaur in which seven Athenian girls and seven Athenian boys were offered to the Crete monster the Minotaur, part man, part bull.<br />In this painting the Minotaur is an expression of forbidden desires. It shows beastly lust, violence, guilt, and despair.<br />
  4. 4. The Birth of Venus<br />Sandro Botticelli<br />The birth of Venus relates to birth of Venus who is said to have risen from the foam of the sea. This picture emphasizes Venus’s birth from the sea as she arises from the ocean. Venus is known for her extravagant beauty and this is shown through the depiction of her golden hair and the flowers surrounding her. The painting shows Venus arising from the shell rather than the foam of the sea. Zephyr and Chloris are the figures next to her.<br />
  5. 5. Apollo and Daphne<br />Antonio del Pollaiuolo<br />1470-1480<br />C. The myth about Apollo and Daphne, where Apollo falls in love with Daphne because of Cupid’s love arrow. Daphne rejects Apollo, and Daphne is transformed to a tree<br />D. The picture is a very direct interpretation of the myth. The picture retells the part of the myth were Daphne is turning into a tree <br />Sean Kim, Brian Shim, Michelle Kim<br />
  6. 6. The Birth of Venus<br />Sandro Botticelli<br />The myth shown is the myth of the birth of Venus, who was born from the castrated genitals of Uranus.<br />It is a depiction of the birth of Venus, who is the center figure floating on the shell. The figure on the right is a Horae, and the flying figure on the left Zephyr. Chloris clings onto Zephyr.<br />
  7. 7. Phaeton and the Chariot of the Sun<br />R.B. Anderson, "Norse Mythology" <br />A man in a chariot falling from the skies.<br />Phaeton, Helios son is driving the chariot of the Sun. Because of his hubris and arrogance, he loses his control, falls from the chariot, and dies<br />Arrogance can lead to failure, and even death<br />
  8. 8. Leda and the SwanMichelangelo<br />Myth<br />The myth that it relates is the myth of how Zeus and Leda procreate. It says that Zeus comes to Leda in the form of the swan and seduces/rapes her. The same night, Leda sleeps with her husband, King Tynadareus. Later, Leda lays two eggs and when the eggs hatch, there are four children, Helen and Polydeuces, who were from Zeus and Castor and Clytemnestra, who were from Tyrnadareus . <br />Myth Retold<br />Some modern elements added to the myth include the more erotic overtones. The painting clearly depicts Zeus and Leda having sexual intercourse despite the fact that Zeus is in the form of a swan. More modern retellings of the story more explicitly tell of the act of sex rather than the fact that there was sex (example: Leda and the Swan by William Butler Yeats). <br />Meg Kim, Jungsoo Kim, Chan-Jun Park<br />
  9. 9. The Trojan Horse Into Troy 1760By Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo<br />The Myth relates to the Trojan Horse story during the end of Trojan War.<br />The Myth is retold by a modernized painting where it shows Trojans pulling in the Trojan Horse. One variation may be that the horse actually looks like and moves like a live horse.<br />
  10. 10. Saturn Devouring One of His Children<br />Artist: Francisco de Goya<br />Myth: Cronus, leader of the Titans, ate each of his newborns because he was scared that they would overthrow him.<br />Myth Retold: Goya chose to portray this myth in a very dark and grotesque manner. Cronus’s wife saves one of the babies, who is Zeus. When Zeus grows up, he makes his father throw up all of the eaten children and kills him.<br />However, Goya’s depiction is less hopeful.<br />
  11. 11. Title: The Judgement of Paris<br />Artist: Lucas Cranach the Elder<br />Myth:The golden apple feud<br />between Athena, Hera, and Venus<br />How is the myth retold?<br />Paris is a medieval knight instead of a shepherd. The goddesses look as if they are trying to seduce him. It seems out-of-context that Paris is fully dressed whereas the goddesses are not. Also, the goddesses look less glorious.<br />
  12. 12. “The Fall of Icarus” by Jacob Peter Gowy<br />The painting relates to the story of Icarus. In the myth, Daedalus, the father of Icarus, warns his son not to fly near the Sun. However, while they were escaping the labyrinth, Icarus deludes himself, believing that his ability equaled that of the gods. Hence, he goes near the Sun and faces death. <br />The painting shows how his ambition and hubris led him to death. The painting emphasizes his failure and that humans can never equal to the immortals.<br />
  13. 13. Hercules Fighting Death to Save Alcestis (1869) <br />By Frederic Lord Leighton<br />This myth relates to Hercules, the story of a man named Hercules who has extraordinary powers such as, strength, agility, bravery, and intelligence.<br />This painting portrays the strength of Hercules by depicting him fighting for his possible love interest, Alcestis.<br />
