Myths and Legends: Penelope and Eurycleia

Penelope and Eurycleia. To find out more about Penelope, the wife of Odysseus, see this Wikipedia article: link; for information about the image: image source.

This lovely painting of Penelope and the faithful servant Eurycleia is by the 18th-century artist Angelika Kauffman. If you are not familiar with her work, check out the Wikipedia article about her to learn more and see more examples of her paintings. I think they are marvelous!
