[Ceres and Stellio.]
[Ceres and Stellio.] Dum frugum genitrix, tadas accendit in AEtna [...]
AElsheimer pinit. W. Hollar fecit aqua forti 1646.
Etching, platemark 300 x 230mm (11¾ x 9"). Late.
Ceres drinks thirstily, while a small boy mocks her by pointing to her. In Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' she responds by turning the boy into a lizard. Etching by Wenceslaus Hollar, perhaps the greatest printmaker active in 17th century England, after the miniaturist and specialist in night scenes Adam Elsheimer. This is actually a copy in reverse of Hendrik van Goudt's 1610 print of Elsheimer's original painting.
