Gods, Saints, and Heroes: An Art History Resource

Screenshot
Many famous works of European art highlight symbolic figures and images that reference mythology, biblical figures, or works of literature. Gods, Saints, and Heroes is an interactive guide that allows visitors to learn about such artistic symbolism. Created by Hannah Schockmel, a graduate student in Archeology and Art History at the University of Maryland, this website contains a number of Interactive Galleries, which are sorted thematically (Saints, Mythological Figures, Classical Heroes, Etc.). Each gallery includes numerous annotated paintings and sculptures, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Proserpine, Gustav Klimt's Pallas Athene, and Giuseppe Mazzuoli's The Death of Adonis. Visitors can learn more about certain images or artistic choices by moving their cursor over marked sections of each work of art. In addition to exploring the Interactive Galleries, visitors can also Browse by Symbol/Attribute or check out an Index of all figures in these works.
