Abducted bride rescued, accused held
Without these cookies, we can't provide services to you. This work shows the abduction of Persephone by Hades. Strongly echoing conventions from Abduction scenes in Classical Art, Persephone is depicted with her arms thrown out, flowers falling from her hands, as Hades grabs her from his chariot.
It is interesting to note that this is the only depiction of the Abduction I have found where the couple is interracial. For an American artist to depict the rape of a white woman by a black man is an insensitive and problematic choice, given that there was a time not very long ago in America when there was a prevailing belief that all black men desired to rape white women. It is also of interest that by theory of the gender of the artist informing the theme of the artwork is supported here.
The female artist chooses to show Persephone alone, in a moment where she is both wife and queen. On the other hand, the male artist focuses on the Rape scene, where Persephone is at her most vulnerable and without agency. You have made an interesting observation with regard to the depictions of Persephone when portrayed by a male versus female artist.
