About

This painting is an example of Angelica Kauffman’s work with historical/subject painting. It is a rare instance of Kauffman painting a single-figure within the genre. Inspired by the Greek myth, she chooses to depict the particular moment where Ariadne notices that her lover, Theseus, abandons her after they escape from the Minotaur. Ariadne’s gesture is very theatrical, turning away her body and averting her eyes from the fleeing ship. Ariadne dominates the painting, with her body and the subsequent bed/chair she sits on calling our attention. Their lavishness and color contrast against the dreary and solemn background.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.

Please note that the images of frames displayed here are meant to be representative of those used in our custom-framed products, but may not exactly match the ones in the actual products
