Journal Option—Book III

| No Comments

Examine the two images, which take the story of Actaeon in Book III of the "Metamorphoses" as their subject. Write about similarities and differences between these works. The first, Slide #1, shows an oil painting by Giuseppe Cesari (1603–06), "Diana and Actaeon," now on exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest. The second presents a bronze sculpture by Paul Manship, "Actaeon" (1924), a permanent installation at Brookgreen Gardens in Pawley's Island, South Carolina. Among your considerations, you may include details in Ovid's descriptions, details in the derivative works, the media chosen by the artists, and the location of the pieces.
