Arion on a Sea Horse, 1855. Creator: William Adolphe Bouguereau (French, 1825-1905)

Arion on a Sea Horse, 1855. These paintings are from a series of eight works that Anatole Bartholoni commissioned the 29-year-old Bouguereau to create for his Paris home, decorated in the fashionable Pompeian-revival style. The paintings emulate ancient Roman designs. Crisp, cut-out forms are set against a gold background painted in imitation of mosaic. Arion was an ancient Greek poet who escaped death by riding away on the back of a sea creature who had been attracted by the poets song. In the companion picture, a bacchante--a female worshipper of the wine god Bacchus--rides a panther, the gods symbolic animal. These works were shown at the 1857 Paris Salon exhibition
