As both a founder of the Munich Secession and an influential teacher at the city's Royal Academy (where his students included Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky), Franz von Stuck was a central figure in Munich's art world at the turn of the twentieth century. His modern interpretation of the antique in works such as this sculpture brought him particular success.
