Perseus Delivers Andromeda
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, Andromeda was the daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia. The queen's boasting about her beauty angered Poseidon, god of the sea. He sent a tsunami and a terrifying sea monster, Cetus. No relief would be found until the king exposed his daughter Andromeda to the monster. So, she was chained to a rock on the shore. Perseus slew the monster, setting her free. Perseus married Andromeda. When she died she became a bright constellation in the stars.
