Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

All fabuloso! I especially love the painting of the little Manuela Gutierrez, but all of these works are marvellous.

Thank you for showing these, as most are new to me, and so beautiful. (I saw the large exposition of the "Big Five, 1900-1950" in Paris in October, and was surprised to learn that a nearly identical show ran at Canada's National Gallery... sixteen years earlier.)
