Jean-Auguste-Dominique INGRES , 1780 - 1867

Angelica saved by Ruggiero

Date: 1819-39
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 47.6 x 39.4 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1918

The subject is taken from Ariosto's epic poem, 'Orlando Furioso' (Canto 10). Ruggiero, riding on a hippogriff (a mythological animal which was half horse and half griffin), rescues Angelica from a sea monster.

This painting is a later and smaller version of a large picture on this subject which Ingres painted for Louis XVIII in 1819 which is now in the Louvre, Paris.
