His affair with a woman named Leto led to the birth of the twins Apollo and Artemis. Hera being the jealous wife she was, forced Leto to roam the earth in search of a place to give birth, for Hera had stopped her from gaining shelter on land or at sea. The only place she could go was to the isle of Delos in the middle of the Aegean Sea, for Delos was a floating island. This would be one of many of Hera’s revenges on her husband’s affairs. Zeus used many different disguises to seduce women. When he seduced the Spartan queen Leda, he transformed himself into a beautiful swan, and from the egg which Leda produced, two sets of twins were born. They were Polydeuces and Castor and Clytemnestra and Helen of Troy. He also visited princess Danae as a shower of gold, and from this, the hero Perseus was born. He kidnapped the Phoenician princess Europa, disguised as a bull, then carried her on his back to the island of Crete where she had three sons. They were Minos, Rhadamanthys, and Sarpedon. These were just some of his many children. Zeus had many Temples and festivals in his honor, the most famous was Olympia, the magnificent "Temple of Zeus", which held the gold and ivory statue of the enthroned Zeus, which was sculpted by Phidias. It was later to become one of the "Seven Wonders of the Ancient World". Also the Olympic Games and many other numerous festivals throughout Greece were held in
Nanette Salomon, a very well known feminist writer, wrote the article, “Judging Artemisia: A Baroque Woman in Modern Art History.” The article opens up with a discussion about the 2001-2 exhibition of Orazio and Artemisia Gentileschi: Father and Daughter Painters in Baroque Italy. The author explains that three things are unusual here: the fact that two famous artists were presented at the same time, that they were related as father and daughter, and the fact that the woman was better known than the man. Her intent in this article is to look at the effects of this trope (figure of speech) in the past and in the present.

Many years ago, Artemis the god of hunting was a good man and he always went out for a run in the morning through the woods. He always saw animals in the woods and he loved when he would see a big buck running beside him. One day Artemis was going to run 2 miles in the woods.

As stated earlier, Artemis became an eternal maiden, choosing to remain celibate, she was very protective of her and her hunter’s chastity. When men witnessed her naked, bathing, she would hear their side of the story before striking them down, such was the tale of Sipriotes, who was a child and accidently witnessed Artemis in the nude, being innocent she transformed him into a girl so she would not have to kill him. However, when an adult hunter, Actaeon, witnessed her nudity, he demanded that she be his wife and bear his children, Artemis responded by transforming him into a deer, to be eaten by his dogs. Apollo was impatient in his dealings with humans; such as, when the Queen Niobe of Delos bragged that she was greater than Leto, the twins’ mother, because she had sixteen children instead of two, Apollo took his golden bow and struck down all of her children and incited the citizens to tear her apart. Another instance was when Apollo had a flute contest with a satyr, with King Midas as the sole judge. Apollo was certain he would win, being the god of music, but the satyr was declared the winner, causing Apollo to fly into a fit of rage; he flayed the goat alive and cursed Midas with donkey
Considered one of the most important artists of the Baroque movement in Early Modern Europe, Artemisia Gentileschi, had to prove herself and break down the boundaries for a woman in a male dominated field. Artemisia was born in Rome on July 8, 1953 to Orazio and Prudentia Monotone Gentileschi, who died when the artist was only twelve years of age. Her upbringing was left to her father, who was also a well-known painter. He trained her since she was not permitted to learn in the studios of successful artists of the moment. Orazio introduced his daughter to the working artists of Rome including Caravaggio, whose tenebrism technique and chiaroscuro style had a great influence on her paintings.

In Hatzitsinidou’s writing of the myth, Artemis’ mother, Leto, had angered Zeus’s rightful wife, Hera, and as a result was denied shelter from everywhere the sun touched (“The Birth…”). Leto was left to wander around in a plight until she came upon an island, referred to as “Ortygia” (“Greek Mythology” 130) and also “Delos” (Hatzitsinidou “The Birth…”) in different versions. Nevertheless, Artemis was finally born “on the sixth day of the month of Thargelion” (“Greek Mythology” 130) and also acted as a midwife for the “delivery of Apollo(her twin brother) a few moments after her own birth” (Evans 28).
