Circe Invidiosa (1892) by John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) shows the mythological story of Circe turning Scylla into a sea monster using bright green poison. The reason? Circe was in love with Glaucus, but he was more interested in Scylla. And Circe did not like that and decided to punish Scylla. Note that the whole painting does not fit here. Check my stories for a better view. The painting puts the emphasis on the process, not on whether Scylla's human form has already turned into a sea monster. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPaint #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Waterhouse #JohnWilliamWaterhouse #Circe #Invidiosa #CirceInvidiosa #Scylla #Poison #Green #Love #Myth #Mythology #Adelaide #Museum
