Classical myth provided the impregnation of females by gods who were disguised as many things, sometimes a cloud, a shower of gold and even animals such as a bull, an eagle and a swan. However many of these sexual pairings between the two are not visually pleasing to the mind. The bird, which is a rather small partner, was an easier view to the eyes of the public rather than a beast with two heads. Here we have both female and swan portrayed in harmony, caressing each other fully, enjoying their company. The swan places his caring and protective wing around Leda’s thigh, much like a man would place his hand on his partner’s thigh. The sawn slowly comes up for a kiss while Leda pulls her face away flirtatiously, still enticing the swan with her hands wrapped around his neck. http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/art/great-works/great-works-leda-and-the-swan-circa-1515-after-leonardo-1882258.html

Telemachus falls in love with a beautiful graceful young woman named Eucharis. Telemachus has to end their romance because he has to embark on a journey to find his missing father Odysseus. The destroyed couple say farewell in a grotto on Calypso’s island. Depicted in the painting is the torn apart expression of Telemachus’ face as he gently grabs her left thigh. Eucharis hopelessly hugs him and rests her head on his shoulder submissively giving him up. The use of saturated reds and blues contrasted with flesh tones and combined with clarity of line and form is an example of Neoclassical style Art. Their expression and body language in the painting clearly depict the love that they have is eternal.

This piece shows how nature of personal love contradicts the nature of human life. While love is all about coming together and becoming one, life is about separation.

The man is dressed in black the color of sorrow and the color red symbolizes love, pain and blood.
