Original artwork description from The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

This subject from Ovid's Metamorphoses depicts the sorceress Medea casting spells to rejuvenate her husband's father Aeson, whose body lies in the middle of a magic circle. Two altars, dedicated to Hecate and to Youth, are near the figures; a black sheep has been sacrificed on one of them. An inscription on the back of the canvas identifies this painting as a sketch executed by Giaquinto during his sojourn in Spain (1753–62) for a tapestry for the Real Fábrica de Tapices de Santa Bárbara in Madrid. The tapestry, probably destined for one of the royal residences, was never produced.
