"Jupiter and Semele" is an intricate and richly detailed painting by Gustave Moreau, created around 1894. This symbolist work depicts the mythological story of Jupiter and Semele from Ovid's "Metamorphoses." The central figure, likely Jupiter, is depicted with a radiant halo, seated on an elaborate throne adorned with various mythological and symbolic elements. The scene is filled with an abundance of figures, including angels, mythical creatures, and deities, all intricately interwoven into the composition. The painting features a rich palette of colours, with golds, blues, and reds predominating, enhancing the sense of opulence and grandeur.

Above, heavenly beings and stars add a celestial dimension, while below, various figures engage in activities, creating a dynamic and multifaceted scene. The overall composition reflects Moreau's fascination with myth, symbolism, and ornate detail, making "Jupiter and Semele" a quintessential example of his artistic style.
