Perseus Freeing Andromeda (Wtewael)

Perseus Freeing Andromeda (1611) by Joachim Wtewael

Perseus Freeing Andromeda is a 1611 oil-on-canvas painting by the Dutch Mannerist painter Joachim Wtewael. Since 1982 it has been in the collection of the Louvre in Paris. A preparatory drawing for it also survives in the Albertina in Vienna, reprising the pose in the same artist's St Sebastian Bound to a Tree for Andromeda.[1] In the final painting he used a less curving and more supple pose for Andromeda.[2]
