Mercury and Apollo, Odysseus and Bacchus are dazzling figures from antiquity. The fascinating deeds of residents of the Greco-Roman gods and heroes of ancient stories continue to inspire to this day. Like the reports of feasts in Olympus, they have always inspired the imagination of visual artists. Oil sketches by well-known baroque painters from the Reuschel Collection impressively illustrate scenes from myth and history. Complex narratives of world literature are succinctly brought to the point by these colorful, small-format paintings.
