“Andromeda Chained to the Rocks”

Gustave Doré was an incredibly prolific artist who worked in multiple mediums. He was a bit of a troublemaker. Doré is perhaps best known for THE definitive illustration of Cervantes' Don Quixote that influences depictions of the knight and his squire to this day.

“Andromeda Chained to the Rocks” is a very common theme, but Doré still managed to give his personal touch. Notice how the mythological elements are barely there and how Andromeda's face is in shadow. I think her pose is more realistic than most other versions, including the more famous Rembrandt.

I’m a naturist in both senses of the word. Life doesn’t always need clothes. I admire the human body. I hope you can too.
