Summary
Jacques-Louis David's painting of a theme related to the Odyssey is one of his last brilliant mythological works. His exploration of the complexities and ambiguities of the psychology of love is central to his treatment of the subject. In addition to a history of David's career and his influence on the French school of painting, this study provides an analysis of the innovative iconography of the painting and the context in which it was created, as well as its contemporary reception
