Goddess and Polis

This catalogue and the exhibition it accompanies examine in detail one such event, the Panathenaia, the great festival of Athens devoted to the patron goddess of the city. As a subject it is particularly well suited to this format because the Panathenaia was unique among Greek festivals in commissioning works of art as prizes for many of the competitions. (Neils, 7)

Attributed to the Princeton Painter. (c.540 BC). Black-Figure Amphora with Aulode. Ceramic with red-figure decoration. 15 3/8 x 10 inches. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, New York.

The VRC has cataloged 9 images from Goddess and Polis. These images are available to the SCAD community in the Digital Image Database with an active MySCAD log-in.
