Waterhouse Circe Invidiosa. John William Waterhouse (Circe, daughter of the sun, was a sorceress best known for her ability to turn men into animals with her magic wand.)
Circe Invidiosa • John William Waterhouse • Waterhouse has shown the enchantress wearing a stunning gown of peacock feathers. The poison she pours matches her dress. It is a luminous turquoise, like a liquid jewels. But this beautiful mixture will cause unimaginable horror and pain to the innocent sea nymph Scylla.

Jean- Honoré Fragonard "The Happy Accidents of the Swing" 1767-1768 Oil on Canvas, Wallace Collection, London, UK The painting depicts a young man hidden in the bushes, watching a woman on a swing, being pushed by her elderly husband, almost hidden in the shadows, and unaware of the lover. As the lady goes high on the swing, she lets the young man take a furtive peep under her dress, while flicking her own shoe off in the direction of a Cupid and turning her back to two angelic cherub
Rococo artists were more interested in the beauty and fun being shown in the paintings they made than in showing scenes with deeper meanings. Fragonard, Jean-Honoré. "The Swing", oil on canvas, 1767 (Wallace Collection, London, United Kingdom).
Jean Honore Fragonard painted The Swing in 1766 in the Rococo style. The painting, whose theme was quite scandalous, became an immediate success. A young lady is being pushed on her swing by her priest-lover. The swing’s movement brings her over a young man, who is lying on the ground and looking up her skirt. She kicks off her shoe, aiming at the statue of Cupid.
Jean-Honore Fragonard - The Swing, 1767, oil on canvas. this painting is why I love art history.
