Frederic Leighton's painting "Orpheus and Eurydice" (1864) is a representation of the ancient Greek myth. The story revolves around Orpheus, a legendary musician and poet who attempts to rescue his wife, Eurydice, from the underworld. In the painting, Orpheus plays his lyre as he leads Eurydice out of the underworld. Their journey is depicted through various scenes: 1. The Sacrifice: At the beginning of the story, Orpheus sacrifices his love for music to save his wife from certain death. 2. The Underworld: Orpheus and Eurydice enter the realm of the dead, where they encounter various characters from Greek mythology such as Cerberus, the three-headed dog guarding the gates of Hades. 3. Orpheus plays his lyre: As he plays his enchanting music, all living and dead creatures in the underworld are moved by its beauty, including Eurydice herself. 4. The journey to the surface world: With the help of Orpheus's music, Eurydice is able to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living. 5. The final moment: As they get closer to the surface, a momentary doubt creeps into Orpheus' mind, causing him to look back at his wife, breaking the condition set by Hades for her to follow him out of the underworld alive. Eurydice is then pulled back into the underworld, forever separating them. 6. The story ends with Orpheus, heartbroken and devastated, continuing to play his lyre in a desolate landscape. The painting is an excellent example of Leighton's mastery of classical subjects and his ability to infuse them with emotional depth and beauty.
