"The goddess is seated on the right of the picture, supported by a black female, whilst her feet are wiped by one of her attendant nymphs. Surprise has already given way to indignation at the approach of the intruder, and his doom is fixed irrevoc- ably in her countenance. The other attendant nymphs, four in number, are beautifully disposed, and express, with great vivacity, the different feelings natural to them at the appear- ance of the unexpected visitor."
