The subjects for this painting and its pendant (right of the mantelpiece) come from the Metamorphoses, famous stories by the Roman author Ovid. In both scenes, Jupiter, king of the gods, disguised himself in order to seduce a maiden. Here, he is seen as a shepherd courting Mnemosyne. In the other painting, he passes himself off as Diana, goddess of the hunt, in order to charm her nymph Callisto.

Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm round about the artwork in order to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.

The acrylic glass protects your custom fine art print against light and external influences for many years to come.
