Atalanta (drawing her bow lower left) and her lover Meleager (on horseback with spear) slay the huge boar which Diana sent to devastate the countryside of Calydon. Dramatic rocky landscape with waterfall behind, showing the influence of Salavator Rosa's sublime scenery on British landscape. Subject from Ovid's 'Metamorphoses', a rich source of subject matter for artists. Engraved by leading mezzotint engraver Richard Earlom after the painting, c.1770, by Richard Wilson (now in the Tate collection). The publisher of this print, Robert Sayer, was the first recorded owner of the painting. The legend to the final state of this print attributes the painting to Wilson and another artist, John Hamilton Mortimer, although Mortimer's involvement is doubted by Spencer-Longhurst et al in their recent catalogue raisonné of Wilson's work.
