Artist words

The fountain used to belong to the park of the villa of the industrialist Gustav Siegle (1840-1905), built in 1870. His widow Julie had the fountain built in 1911 by the sculptor Karl Donndorf on the northern slope of the Karlshöhe in neoclassical style. In the centre of the neoclassical fountain is the antique statue of the goddess Athena at the moment of her birth. According to Greek mythology, she emerged from the head of her father Zeus in full armour and armament. The stone Athena figure wears a breastplate and helmet as well as a metal shield and spear. Below the statue of Athena and the head of Zeus are two stair-like fountain basins. Next to the lower basin, the stone figure of Prometheus can be seen on Athena's right hand. To her left is the figure of Pandora with the famous box on her lap.

Art description

This was my first painting, which I did in Stuttgart in oil on canvas. In the deliberately off-centre representation, I left out the statue of Prometheus and focused on wisdom and bravery, virtues embodied by Athena, as opposed to the evils that afflict humanity (Pandora and her vase). I opted for a quick brushstroke that allowed me to capture the chromatic variations of light throughout the day. The green of the trees provides a compositional balance to the ochre stones of the fountain. Giaman Nerodimarte
