Odysseus and the Sirens

Painted by Herbert James Draper 1909. A beautiful painting.

 

Very different from the painting by J. W. Waterhouse of the same theme. Whilst Waterhouse' sirens were depicted as birds with women's heads, here we have the sirens portrayed as mermaids and with legs out of water.
