William Welles Bosworth, known as the personal architect of John D. Rockefeller Jr, was responsible for much of the architecture at Rockefeller's Kykuit estate, as well as MIT's campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Despite these and other high-profile designs, Bosworth was better known in France, where he was one of the few Americans ever to receive the Legion of Honor and the French Cross of the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters for his restoration of Versailles and Notre-Dame de Reims, both funded by Rockefeller.
As these projects ended in 1936, Bosworth began work on the Villa Marietta in Vaucresson, remaining in France with his family and eventually becoming an associate member of the École des Beaux-Arts, where he had received his architectural training early in his career.
Aphrodite is primarily worshipped as the Greek Goddess of Love, Beauty, Pleasure and Eternal Youth but she was also worshipped as a goddess of the sea and of seafaring; as well as as a goddess of war. As is the case with many Greek deities, there is more than one version of the legend of Aphrodite's birth. The Greek word aphros means 'foam', and according to Hesiod's Theogony, she arose from the sea foam produced by the severed genitals of Uranus (Heaven), after his son Cronus threw them into the sea.
