CPLH, 18th and 19th Century English Figurative Prints and Drawings, 18 June - 18 Sept 1988.
Classical building with columns is the setting where two men nude save for wraps around their hips and with wrists tied, are presented to an aristocratic-looking woman. Behind her are several women with concerned expressions, and behind the nude men is a crowd of other men of varying ages, many carrying lances. A stone piece with bas-relief figures on the side and a small fire on top stands between the woman the two men. Another man crouches in the foreground, holding a tall handled jug. In the clouds Artemis with crescent moon as her headdress and holding bow and arrow watches over the scene. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/13/95)
