The myth:
His brothers were Orestes, Electra and Chrysothemes. It is said that she was actually the daughter of Theseus and Helen. Still young, Elena was kidnapped by the hero who, according to some authors, violated her. Helen was then saved by the Dioscuri and swore to them that she had maintained her virginity, but in reality, to Argos, on the way back, she gave birth to a girl, Iphigenia, and consecrated a sanctuary to Artemis as a sign of gratitude for the alleviated birth from suffering. Then he entrusted Clitemnestra to the baby, who adopted her as his daughter.


The work:
In the port of Aulis, there is no wind, or not enough to advance the Greek fleet to Troy. Menelaus, brother of Agamemnon, then consults the diviner Calchas, who announces that Agamemnon has offended Artemis and that the goddess requires the sacrifice of Iphigenia to free the wind. Agamemnon at first refuses this decision, therefore, pushed by Menelaus and Ulysses, he accepts. A messenger leaves and goes to convince Iphigenia to marry Achilles. Accompanied by Clitennestra and Oreste, the four arrive in Aulis and accidentally discover the real reason for his coming. He accepts his sacrifice but Artemis replaces her with a doe on the altar proclaiming herself a priestess of the temple of Tauris. Clytemnestra believes her daughter is dead and for this reason she kills Agamemnon on his return. Years later, Oreste and his friend Pylade approach the Tauride, with the intent to steal the statue of Artemis, near the temple where Iphigenia has the task of sacrificing all the foreigners who land on the coast. He recognizes his brother and they run away with the statue, helped by Athena.

Sébastien Bourdon 1616 - 1671
French painter, he trained in Italy with Nicolas Poussin, C. Lorenese, A. Sacchi, Valentin.
Back in France, he had great fame for his landscapes; in 1648 he was among the founders of the Royal Academy of painting.
He was also in Sweden (1652-54), invited by Queen Cristina. Among his most noteworthy works are the decorations of the Vauvert palace in Montpellier, the frescoes in the gallery of the Bretonvilliers palace in Paris (destroyed) and the Apotheosis of Hercules in the Tuileries.
Although Protestant, he painted religious paintings (Presentation in the temple, Paris, Louvre); he was a skilled and effective portraitist.

The eclecticism of his style did not prevent him from reaching sometimes a great pictorial intensity, especially in portraits
(Self-portrait, Paris, Louvre; Queen Cristina on horseback, Madrid, Prado).

Certificate of origin and historical authenticity writthen Mr Musetti Renato italian expert of Sébastien Bourdon.
