ART + MYTH + LITERATURE = Show + Test - 312 Slides Art History

Just like fiction, fairy tales, legends, biblical lore, and myths, art often spends its time with imaginary beings. This presentation explores the many beings in those worlds and the various ways they have been depicted. Although we are used to thinking of “book illustration” in this connection, that is only one small part of the fine arts and storytelling. It is just as likely one will encounter paintings by Pablo Picasso, William Blake and Francisco Goya, to name a few of the artists.

This presentation is in alphabetical order. Usually this is in the name of the characters as in “Cupid and Psyche” or “King Arthur”. But sometimes it is in the name of the writer. Shakespeare has so many painted characters, for example, that it was less confusing to group them under “Shakespeare.” But the characters are in alphabetical order once you are in the Shakespeare overall heading. This method of classifying was so that one could go back and use this as a reference work after encountering new characters with further reading.

There is a visual based multiple choice test at the end.
