Artemis (Diana) Photos

The Birth of Artemis and Apollo
Ah, the day Apollo and I were born. Notice Hera looking all creepy in the background? [Die Geburt des Apollo und der Diana by Marcantonio Franceschini, 1692-1709.]


Portrait of Artemis
I wish I knew who painted this one; I'd grace him with some fresh game. [Head of Diana by an anonymous artist, 18th century.]


Artemis and the Moon
Me, the moon, and a bow – a perfect combination. [Dian als Personifikation der Nacht by Anton Raphael Mengs, 1765.]


Artemis Hunting
There's nothing better than hunting with my hounds. [Diane Hunting by Bartolomeo Passarotti, 16th century.]


Artemis and Apollo
Fun times with my twin bro and my pet deer. [Landscape With Apollo and Diana by Lucas Cranach the Elder, 1530.]


Artemis Bathing with Her Nymphs
If you've never taken a group bath in the woods, then you haven't really lived. [Diana and Her Nymphs Bathing by Jean-Francois de Troy, 1722-1724.]


Actaeon Spying on Artemis
Actaeon paid dearly for being a peeping Tom. [Diana and Actaeon by Jacob Jordaens, 1640.]


Artemis and Pan
Pan was looking a little scrawny so I gave him some fresh kills. [Diana Presenting the Catch to Pan by Peter Paul Rubens, 1615.]


Niobe's Children
The day Apollo and I killed all of Niobe's children. Too harsh? Nah. She trash-talked my mom. [Children of Niobe by Jacques-Louis Dave, 1775.]


The Sacrifice of Iphigenia
I didn't really let Iphigenia die – she was whisked away to the Taurians. [Fresco, Naples.]
