Tableau de Jacques Bassan, du Cabinet de Mr Dupille / Peint sur toille, haut de deux pieds, large de deux pieds cinq pouces gravé par E. Fessard.
Diana and Actaeon, after Italian artist Jacopo Bassano (c.1510-92). The painting, one of Bassano's final works (c.1585-92) is now in the Art Institute of Chicago. As recounted in Ovid's 'Metamorphoses', Acteaon saw Diana, goddess of the hunt, bathing with her nymphs. The furious Diana turned Actaeon into a deer, and here she (on the right) observes Acteaon, as a deer, pursued by the hounds who will finally kill him.
