The Farewell of Telemachus and Eucharis by Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825)
oil on canvas, 1818




The ill-fated lovers say farewell in a grotto on Calypso’s island. Facing towards us, Telemachus’s blue tunic falls open to reveal his naked torso. Eucharis, seen in profile, encircles Telemachus’s neck and gently rests her head upon his shoulder in resignation. In this way, Jacques-Louis David contrasts masculine rectitude with female emotion. x
