Catalogue Note

Badin was a pupil of Alexandre Cabanel and Paul Baudry, whose academic influence is clearly visible in the present Salon painting. Here the Greek mythological sorceress Circe stands contrapposto, bearing the cup which she offered to Odysseus' crew in the Odyssey, and the wand with which she turned them into swine.
