Description:

Mythological photogravure of Diana: the daughter of Jupiter, the Chief God and the twin sister of Apollo. Her mother, Latona, was one of Jupiter’s paramours. When Diana was born her mother bore her painlessly, and then Diana helped her mother deliver Apollo, thus making Diana the Patroness of Childbirth. As a child Jupiter asked Diana what she like to have as gifts. She replied that she wanted eternal virginity (in the sense of always being true to her own nature), as many names as Apollo, a bow and arrow like Apollo’s, the office of bringing light (providing guidance to others), a saffron tunic with a red hem, and nine nymphs as her maidens.

Artist:

Jean François de Troy (1679-1752) was a French Rococo easel and fresco painter, draughtsman and tapestry designer. One of France’s leading history painters in his time, he was equally successful with his decorative paintings, genre scenes and portraits
