Leda and the Swan, Volume 2


Just so you don't think I'm crazy with this whole swan business, I nabbed this comprehensive collection of LATS images from a post on a blog called Where Is Ariadne?, which is a hoot.  I would urge you to check it out.

The only image of significance that's missing is Cy Twombly's.  Maybe I'll post it later.

Amongst the below, it's hard to pick a favorite, perhaps Gericault.  Adam Miller's, near the end, certainly takes home the deeply-creepy award.  If I'm feeling dreamy, I like the Comerre.

What do you tell your children what the swan is doing? It's clearly not your average pet and seems to thrive in the bush.
