Book VI—Guiding Question

| No Comments

GUIDING QUESTION: Look closely at the two images. The first, a vase painting depicting the abduction of Orithyia, dates from 460 BCE, 417 years before Ovid, and is presently housed in the Milwaukee Art Museum. The second, a sculpture by seventeenth-century French artist Gaspard Marsy, and housed in the Getty Museum in California, portrays the same subject. Comment on either of the two, or both. To what extent are they faithful to Ovid's version? What do they emphasize or leave out?
