Antique Print Garden of Hesperides

Antique Print Garden of Hesperides c.1895

This is a beautiful print of the famous painting 'Garden of Hesperides' by Lord Fredric Leighton, painted in 1892. The Garden of the Hesperides' depicts the three daughters of Hesperus or the God of Evening, the Hesperides, resting. The picture draws its theme from the ancient myth in which the Hesperides were assigned by the Goddess Hera to guard the golden apples which she had been given on her wedding to Zeus by Earth. The theft of the apples is well known as one of the Hercules' Ten Labours. In the painting, the Hesperides sing to the sleeping dragon in the garden at the end of the world where the apples were kept. The lavish colours of the painting and the beauty of the scene make it extremely difficult to predict the invasion of Hercules, the slaying of the dragon and theft of the apples. Leighton portrayed the nymphs relaxing under an apple tree; one of them is playing a lyre, while the other two are surrounded by the snake's coils. He replaced the dragon in the original myth with a serpent entwined around the tree and the body of the central figure. The inclusion of the serpent, the idyllic mood of the painting and the languor of the three female figures in the beautiful garden can be seen to represent eternal life before the fall from paradise. It was common for Victorian artists to invest classical myths and stories with religious messages. The print is presented in a simple wooden frame which compliments the print. Lord Lever bought 'The Garden of the Hesperides' together with 'Daphnephoria' in 1913 from Christie's. The painting can be found in the collection of Lady Lever Art Gallery in Liverpool. Condition: Good original & untouched - please refer to pictures.
