Masters of Disguises (Io and Zeus)

by Emily Swedberg (Ito Inez)

Stretched Canvas

$0.00

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

In order to hide from his suspicious wife, Hera, Zeus comes down to earth as a cloud and seduces the nymph, Io. Hera comes down to see Zeus loitering with a white heifer beside him, which was actually Io in disguise. This painting highlights these interactions as Io, with the head of the white heifer she is soon to become, is in the arms of Zeus, disguised as a fantastical cloud.
