Iphis Hangs Himself In Despair That He Could Not Gain Anaxarete
This spectacular baroque engraving is from Bernard Picart's Le Temple Des Muses.
The engraving was made in 1733, is from the first edition and is an original antique. It has captions in French, English, German, and Dutch.
It is in very good condition for its age.
In Greek mythology, Anaxaretea was a proud princess who spurned the love of a shepherd, Iphis. Anaxarete mocked his feelings until he hanged himself on her doorstep. When she mocked his funeral, calling it pitiful, Aphrodite turned her into a stone statue.
