Questions for Further Study

  1. Gustave Klimt’s “gold phase” begins with his vision of Pallas Athena. Compare Klimt’s painting of Pallas Athena with his paintings of other female figures: Judith I, Judith II, Danaë, and Hygieia. How is his Pallas Athena distinctive from those other works?

  2. Compare what we know of Pheidias’ Athena Parthenos with his other famous cult image of Zeus at Olympia. How do these works reflect the values and tastes of the Classical period?
