 Artistic representations of Greek and Roman mythological figures, gods, and goddesses have been part of Western art history for centuries. From the 16th through 20th centuries, many artists shifted away from biblical themes and focused on classical Greek and Roman stories for their work. The intertwining of art, literature, and music by artists and others resulted in works that gained international attention and appreciation and that are an important part of the contemporary humanities.

  • Caravaggio's Narcissus
  • Berini's Apollo and Daphne
  • Renoir's Diana the Huntress
  • Leighton's Return of Persephone
  • Waterhouse's Pandora
  • Picasso's Minotauromachy 

Hunt's work skillfully analyzes literary, mythological, historical, musical, and artistic elements of works of art showing the depth and knowledge of the artists. In so doing, he demonstrates the importance and relevance of the masterpieces for all who view them. 

Patrick Hunt is an art historian, archaeologist, composer, and poet. His Ph.D. is in Archaeology from the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, (University of London). He has been teaching at Stanford University since 1993 and is a National Geographic Explorer.
