The Battle of the Amazons (second version) is a painting by the German painter Anselm Feuerbach. Created in 1871 and 1873, finished work, measuring 4.05 times 6.93 meters is now in the Germanic National Museum and is owned by the city of Nuremberg.
Anselm Feuerbach (* 1829 in Speyer, † 1880 in Venice) was one of the most important painters of German classicism, like many artists of his time staying in Rome for a long time. There his best known and most highly regarded works emerged as the second version of his “Iphigenia,” the two versions of his “banquet of Plato” and the second version of the “Battle of the Amazons.”
The subject of the picture goes back to the legend of the Amazons in the Trojan War.

Anselm Feuerbach - The Symposium (Second Version) - 1874
The Symposium (Ancient Greek: Συμπόσιον) is a philosophical text by Plato dated c. 385–380 BC. It concerns itself at one level with the genesis, purpose and nature of love, and (in later day interpretations) is the origin of the concept of Platonic love.
Love is examined in a sequence of speeches by men attending a symposium, or drinking party. Each man must deliver an encomium, a speech in praise of Love (Eros). The party takes place at the house of the tragedian Agathon in Athens. Socrates in his speech asserts that the highest purpose of love is to become a philosopher or, literally, a lover of wisdom. The dialogue has been used as a source by social historians seeking to throw light on life in ancient Athens, in particular upon sexual behavior, and the symposium as an institution.
