This scene represents the goddess, with her youthful guest, in a light barge sailing gently down a river. The happy Telemachus stands in the middle, surrounded by the attendants of Calypso, a bevy of pretty nymphs of every style and beauty; one is placing a wreath around him, some are dancing, others singing and playing musical instruments; Cupid has charge of the helm, and Calypso stands at the prow. [P. 12; exhibited under heading: "Small Pictures Hung on a Screen."]
