Leucothoe Is Seduced By Apollo In The Shape Of Eurynome
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 Ovid's Metamorphoses, Leucothoe was a Babylonian princess. Aphrodite cursed Apollo, the sun god, to fall in love with Leucothoe. He disguised himself as her mother, Eurynome, to gain entrance to her chambers and seduce her.
