Pygmalion and Galatea 1797, Louis Gauffier 1761-1801, Oil on canvas

The subject of this painting is a Greek myth, told by the Roman poet Ovid in his Metamorphoses.
Pygmalion was the King of Cyprus, who sculpted a statue of the sea-nymph Galatea.
In answer to his prayers, it was brought to life by Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
Here she holds a butterfly above Galatea's head, symbolising metamorphosis, or transformation.

Gauffier was a French artist who lived in Rome.
He fled to Florence after the execution of Louis XVI and painted works such as this for the British market.
Much of his detailing is based on Florentine antiquities.

Purchased with the assistance of the National Art Collections Fund 1979.54

●wikipediaに彼の経歴があります。
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Gauffier
Louis Gauffier (1762–1801) was a French painter. Born in Poitiers, he studied in Paris with history painter Hugues Taraval before entering the Prix de Rome competition; this he won in 1784, and apart from a brief return to Paris in 1789 he would remain in Italy for the remainder of his life. Gauffier initially settled in Rome, but popular unrest following the execution of Louis XVI led him to flee with his wife to Florence. He could not receive patronage from France because he was branded a royalist, and this curtailed his career as a history painter. Instead he painted landscapes, which he would sell to English tourists. When French troops occupied Florence in 1799, he began to paint officers' portraits. Gauffier died in Florence in 1801.
