ABOUT THIS PIECE Jacques Blanchard's Zeus and Semele was created in 1632 and is in Dallas Museum of Art. The size of the work is 149,8 x 113,7 cm and is made of oil on canvas. This mythological scene represents the tragic conclusion of the love affair between Zeus, the king of the gods, and the mortal Semele. Upon learning of their liaison, Zeus’s vengeful wife, Hera, befriended Semele and caused her to doubt Zeus’s divine status. Semele asked Zeus to grant her a wish, which he swore to fulfill. She asked him to appear before her in all his glory, but as mortals could not look upon Zeus without bursting into flames, her wish caused her demise. Blanchard captured the dramatic moment when Semele—nude and reclining in bed—looks upon the vision of Zeus descending from the sky with all his emblems. He wears a crown, clutches a thunderbolt, and appears with an eagle, his messenger. The fiery red flames that separate the lovers foretell what is to come. The Artist: Jacques Blanchard (1600–1638), was a French baroque painter. The chief influences were the sixteenth century painters, especially Titian and Tintoretto with their rich, warm colours, and Veronese, whose blond and silvery colour and limpid light he used most effectively in his small religious and mythological subjects.
