by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867), in the Musee Granet, Aix-en-Provence, France
In this masterful painting, the sea nymph Thetis begs Jupiter to intervene and guide the fate of her son Achilles, off fighting in the Trojan War. The two figures are notable for their contrast of power, one mighty, the other beseeching. Ingres was fond of this piece and kept it in his studio for over 20 years, perhaps because it combined timelessly recurring themes in his art, the female character and male authority. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
