Public domain ← → Jupiter and Thetis Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres Date: 1811 Style: Neoclassicism Genre: mythological painting Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 260 x 327 cm Location: Musée Granet, Aix-en-Provence, France Tags: Greek-and-Roman-Mythology, Thetis, Jupiter/Zeus Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter_and_Thetis Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 482x600px, View all sizes Depicting a scene from Homer’s Iliad, in which Thetis begs Jupiter to intervene in the Trojan War, saving the life of her son Achilles, this painting was poorly received by the Paris Salon. The painting, at over 11 by 8 feet, is an immense canvas, and is steeped in the traditions of the classical art of which Ingres was so enamored. Ingres kept the painting his studio until it was purchased by the state in 1834. When it was received at the Paris Salon in 1811, strangely the only artists who recognized the talent were Romantics, Ingres’ hated artistic nemeses.
