Untitled, French fountain with sculpture of Diana and stags
Cyanotype, ca. 1900
Mounted on linen.

In Roman mythology Diana was the goddess of the woodlands, wild animals and hunting. Her association with forests and hunting resulted in artists often portraying her with a bow and quiver and accompanied by hunting dogs or deer.

The fountain in this view shows Diana at its center, poised with her hand reaching for her quiver. Below the sculpture are stags, each with a spray of water coming from its mouth.

The exact location of this lyrical image is unknown.

Sold framed.
