Moreau seems to have worked first on an oil painting showing just Jupiter and Semele (1889-95). This contains a curious composite of the story, in which Semele has not yet been harmed by thunderbolts, but the foetal Bacchus appears to be resting against her, and Jupiter has assumed his divine form. At the foot of the painting is Jupiter’s attribute of an eagle. Jupiter and Semele, 1889-95 by Gustave Moreau. 🏛: @museegustavemoreau #arteesamor #historyofart #arthistory #arte #museegustavemoreau #19thcentury #19thcenturyart #semele #jupiter #artwork #dailypainting #artgallery #artlovers
