Catalogue Note

The present composition appears to be an amalgamation of two existing paintings. The figures of Perseus and Andromeda, here shown in reverse, are taken from François Lemoyne's signed and dated canvas from 1723, in the Wallace Collection, London.The figures in the lower section of the composition, once again reversed, derive from Charles-Antoine Coypel's work dated circa 1726–27, in the Musée du Louvre.2
