Description:

Mythological photogravure of the Deliverance of Andromeda.


Andromeda is the Ethiopian princess, whom Perseus 1 rescued and married. She became queen of Mycenae and, after her death, a constellation and galaxy. Andromeda’s mother Cassiopea was extremely proud of her own beauty. So strong was the pride of this Ethiopian queen, that she could not help comparing her beauty with that of the immortal NEREIDS, boasting of being better than they all. But since this kind of comparison is hateful, the NEREIDS were angry, and Poseidon, sharing their wrath, sent a flood and a sea-monster to ravage the land.Ammon 3—probably a seer, declared that the calamity would disappear if the queen’s daughter Andromeda were exposed as a prey to the monster. So when Andromeda was chained to the rough cliff about to be devoured by the sea-monster there appeared in the sky Perseus 1,wearing the winged sandals of Hermes.

Artist:

Tintoretto (1518-1594)
