Circe was a sorceress in Greek mythology and liked to turn visitors to her island into animals. Circe and Her Swine (1896) by Briton Rivière shows how she has turned the crew of Odysseus into swine using one of her spells. The only one who did not turn into a swine was Odysseus, because he was given immunity to the spell by Hermes. He was subsequently able to befriend Circe and negotiate with her that the spell would be reversed and that the swine would become men again. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #Circe #GreekMythology #Mythology #Sorceress #Swine #Odysseus #Odyssee #Enchantress #Spell #Magic #Potion #Herbs #Homer
