The most determined (Jerod Sloan)

In this gallery, you will see the trials of Odysseus, from the Greek Mythology tale from Homer. You will be able to view this in the spatial perspective through paintings through the years of this mythological story.

Here you can see Odysseus in the lake of fire sacrificing the goat so he is able to speak to Teiresias. The painter John Henry Fuseli is using a brush, and black, gray ink, and watercolor, and he has heightened the painting with white chalk. He is using this technique to present a spatial perspective by giving a 3D look in a sense so it looks like Teiresias is pointing toward the viewer to let Odysseus know to go now he knows his destiny. It also looks like the lighting is used to portray key features across Odysseus' face to relay the depth as well.
This beautiful tapestry are depicting the life of Odysseus right before the trojan war. He really doesn't want to go to war, and be away from his queen Penelope, but he has to serve with his brethren. This is a beautiful display of gold and blue hues, and has a nice spatial perspective. Look at how the greek soldier is twisted his torso around and helps save the fallen child. While the 2D look is where Odysseus is holding back the animals so the soldier can rescue the child.
Odysseus is almost home, but he needs a ship. The kind king who now is in the presence of a hero, gives Odysseus his best ship or vessel. This tapestry is made in Brussels, in the beginning of the 17th century. Dimensions are 249 X 403cm. You can see how the colors and shadowing really make this special piece pop out at you with spatial perspective being how the folds in the clothes and robes look so defined and real. And how in the background is the ship looking like it's behind them.
Here you can see how the spatial perspective is used due to the hues of beautiful coloring is put to use. This gives the unique placement of the two heroes up against Philoctetes turning back, and toward the viewer is the knee of both the men. The shadowing used here also gives depth and realism to this piece of art work.
This piece of art is framed: 75x62 1/2 X 3 1/2 in. Here is Odysseus, just losing everything in basically nothing. Nausicaa is helping him, and her servants have never seen a man in real life, so one of the servants is holding another against her so she doesn't see him in the flesh. Now seeing this part using spatial perspectives, the woman servant looks like her hair is going to fly right into your face, and come off of the painting. Using the lighting and highlights helps with this effects. It looks so real factor is put into play.
Here in this depiction of what has tragically happened to Odysseus' men, Circe has transformed his men into animals. Etching is used here to give that spatial perspective a new twist. Look at the angle of the goat and lamb. It appears that the viewer is put right into the midst of the scene like you were there.
Odysseus has just tricked Polyphemus (the Cyclops, and son of Poseidon) to get away from him. This is a great depiction of spatial perspective. That is because it looks as though you are standing on the beach front watching this go down as it is happening. The ocean waves seem to just be ready to crash onto you. The cyclops is about to throw that big rock at his prey even though he can not see them. And Odysseus gets away. Dimensions: W150X H66cm. It is in the Museum of Fine arts Boston, MA.
