Proserpine (1874). Dante Gabriel Rossetti (English, Pre-Raphaelite, 1828‑1882). Oil paint on canvas. Tate. Proserpine, Empress of Hades, was allowed to return to earth, provided only she had not partaken of any of the fruits of Hades. But she had eaten one grain of a pomegranate, and this enchained her to her new empire and destiny. She is represented in a gloomy corridor of her palace, with the fatal fruit in her hand.
