These three woman have our destinies in their hands... at least according to Greek mythology. The Three Fates (c. 1910) was painted by Alexander Rothaug (1870-1946), an Austrian artist that combined elements of the Classical, Jugendstil, and Symbolism art styles. These three women, also known as Moirai, watched that the fate assigned to every person by eternal laws will take its course without obstruction. The three fates were Clotho (the Spinner), Lachesis (the Allotter), and Atropos (the Inflexible). They all had their own, independent roles. Clotho spun the thread of life from her distaff onto her spindle. Lachesis measured the thread of life allotted to each person with her measuring rod. And Atropos determined an individual’s manner and moment of death and cut the thread. Rothaug presented her in the center of his painting. And they are surrounded by some scenes of human life, on whose fate they decide. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #AustrianArt #AustrianArtist #AustrianPainter #AlexanderRothaug #Rothaug #Fates #Mysterious #Fate #Destiny #Thread #Spinner #Mythology #GreekMythology
