The moment the fisherman realizes he has made a big mistake. The Fisherman and the Siren by Knut Alfred Ekwall (1843-1912) shows a theme that was fairly popular among male artists. The Sirens were mythological creatures who used their beautiful music and voices to lure sailors to the rocky coast of their island. Their ships would typically run on the rocks and the sailors would die (except for Odysseus). Ekwall has taken some freedom in the interpretation of the mythological stories and depicts the Siren as a beautiful woman (whereas she typically is shown as a combination of a woman and a bird). And you can see the swirl which will take down the sailor and his boat. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Siren #Sirens #Myth #Mythology #Swedish #SwedishArtist #SwedishPainter #SwedishArt #Fisherman #Seduced #Seduction #GreekMythology #Shipwreck #Dramatic #Drama
