Size: 14"x11"

The famous French painter and Great Master, William Bouguereau, painted Orestes Pursued by the Furies in 1862. The painting is also fondly referred to in the art world as The Remorse of Orestes. The image in this epic painting is taken from a legend within Greek mythology, something which Bouguereau returned to again and again in his art, as many of his paintings were inspired by Greek legends.

What we observe when we consider this painting, is the terrified figure of Orestes, who is being belittled, tormented and humiliated by the Furies. Taken from Greek tragedy, the mythical and powerful goddesses descend upon Orestes in an act of vengeance.
