The personification of the west wind, to the Greeks gentle and responsible for bringing the start of the growing season, and the abduction and rape of a nymph who became Flora.
Two masterpieces of the Western canon turn a minor tale about a nymph into major narratives: Botticelli and Poussin explored.
Goddess of the harvest, food production, fertility and fecundity, paintings by Millet, Rubens, Elsheimer and others.
Two masterworks: Botticelli’s Primavera (Spring) and Poussin’s Empire of Flora, telling stories from Ovid. And they paintings they influenced.
