  Campbell-Johnston, Rachel (), “A Thousand Words as Titian's Diana and Actaeon Goes on Show at the National Gallery Today,” The Times, September Tanner, Marie (), “Chance and Coincidence in Titian's Diana and Actaeon.” The Art Bulletin, 56(4), The goddess Artemis (Diana) was a great huntress who often takes her bow and quiver to wander off into the deep woods to hunt wild animals. She is often accompanied by the nymphs, and when the hunt ends, she and her nymph companions always seek out a rippling spring to quench their thirsts and bathe their beautiful maiden limbs in the glittering waters.

Diana and Actaeon was designed to be hung together with Diana and Callisto (co-owned by the National Gallery and the National Galleries of Scotland) – a stream runs between them. The story of Actaeon is recounted in Ovid’s Metamorphoses (Book III, –). Book III: Theban Cycle. Arrival of Cadmus () Actaeon () Semele () Tiresias () Narcissus and Echo () Pentheus and Bacchus () Actaeon (): Actaeon's transformation into a deer at Diana's hand is one of my favorite tales in Ovid's text. If we apply Greek tragic vision to this story, the tale fits into.

Actaeon was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that's all it took for him to go from a happy, prosperous young lad to a scared, confused deer. When we look at it this way, we get an interesting comment on fate and tragic circumstances. Neither Artemis nor Actaeon set out to have a bad day or to harm or embarrass the other. Actaeon had some great leadership skills, but his timing was just atrocious. See, while taking a break from guiding his buddies on a hunting trip, Actaeon caught a glimpse of Artemis as she took a bath. Authors are divided on whether or not it was an accident. If it was an intentional move, Actaeon sure had some chutzpah. We mean, this girl is.

Like Achilles in a later generation, he was trained by the centaur Chiron. He fell to the fatal wrath of Artemis, but the surviving details of his transgression vary: "the only certainty is in what Aktaion Parents: Aristaeus and Autonoë.

Actaeon, in Greek mythology, son of the minor god Aristaeus and Autonoë (daughter of Cadmus, the founder of Thebes in Boeotia); he was a Boeotian hero and hunter.

Thebes grew into a strong city and Cadmus had wed Harmonia, daughter of Mars and was good until an unfortunate accident caused the death of Actaeon, Cadmus' day the young Actaeon was out.

DIANA ET ACTAEON – Bernardino Cesari ca. According to a Greek myth, Actaeon, the son of Aristaeus and Autonoe, surprises Diana, the Greek Artemis, while she was bathing with her nymphs. As a punishment she turned him into a stag and, no longer recognized by his pack of 50 hounds, she was torn to pieces by them.

Diana and Actaeon is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Titian, finished in –, and is considered amongst Titian's greatest portrays the moment in which the hunter Actaeon bursts in where the goddess Diana and her nymphs are bathing. Diana is furious, and will turn Actaeon into a stag, who is then pursued and killed by his own hounds, a scene Titian later painted in.

This book begins auspiciously, with the founding of Thebes. However, divine revenge soon takes center stage. The gods punish nearly every major character for a crime, regardless of whether the crime was committed wittingly or unwittingly.

Diana punishes Actaeon for. Actaeon certainly wished he were absent, but he was there. He wanted to watch, not to feel, the savagery of his hounds. The surrounded their master, sinking their muzzles into his body as they ripped him apart in the semblance of a stag.

Nor was the wrath of quiver-bearing Diana sated until Actaeon died from these many wounds. Bk III Actaeon returns from the hunt 4 Bk III Actaeon sees Diana naked and is turned into a stag. 4 Bk III Actaeon is pursued by his hounds.

In this 17th century tapestry, Actaeon is seen fleeing the scene and again, the horns are already on his head implying his impending death in the jaws of his own hunting dogs.

Actaeon is a doomed man who feels guilt and shame, or even fear, from happening on. In the poem, Metamorphoses by Ovid, in the short story “Diana and Actaeon” describes how chaste Diana’s punishment to Actaeon can be seen a bit unfair.

Diana being the goddess of the hunt was innocently taking a bath with her nymphs bathing her when out of the blue a young man called Actaeon is caught seeing the goddness of the hunt naked.

The hunter Actaeon surprised the goddess Diana while she was bathing. To prevent him from telling anybody that he had seen her naked, the goddess fired an arrow and turned him into a stag. In the sculpture, Actaeon appears to have been just hit, while the accompanying piece shows Diana.

Actaeon, who came upon Diana and her nymphs as they bathed in the sacred fountain in the woods of Boeotia, was punished by the goddess for. Actaeon's untouchable "America" is, of course, Diana, the "chaste and fair" goddess of the hunt and the moon.

Any conquest is all hers. In Ovid's account in Metamorphoses, Book III, Actaeon. Actaeon/Aktaion & The Hounds of Diana is used in the television series Under the Dome. Aktaion Energy is the name of a local conglomerate with ties to the Dome event and The Hounds of Diana is a Dome conspiracy/Aktaion Energy watchdog website run by a member of Aktaion's IT department who goes by the alias Dromas.

Notes. In Diana and Actaeon we see what he sees: women kneel and crouch, turn in horror and rush to cover. Titian’s brush shapes their flesh in ethereal yet weighty flicks of colour that capture form. The outraged goddess transforms Actaeon into a stag, and ironically, his own hunting dogs kill him.

Rembrandt’s painting of Diana, Actaeon, and Callisto is an artistic interpretation of Book III – and a bit of Book II- of the Metamorphoses, providing a visual insight of the scene that casts Actaeon. The Myth of Diana and Actaeon.

When a hunters fails to quench his curiosity a goddess filled with rage does the unthinkable – this is tragic the story of Diana and Actaeon.

Enraged at such a violation, Diana cast water into his eyes.
