In the Media: Art Historian Katherine Schwab ’76 on the Parthenon Metopes

Katherine Schwab '76

The National Herald recently profiled Scripps alumna Katherine Schwab ’76, professor of art history at Fairfield University in Connecticut. Since the 1990s, Schwab has made an annual trip to Athens to draw the Parthenon metopes—the panels of scenes alternating with the abstract triple-bar triglyphs all the way around the Parthenon’s exterior—and her study has yielded new information and discoveries.
