Perseus and Andromeda, 1891
Walker Art Gallery,
Liverpool, England
Andromeda's father, Cepheus, had boasted that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the daughters of the sea. Posiden, the god of the sea, got mad and sent a sea-monster to destroy the city. An oracle told Cepheus to chain his daughter to a rock as a sacrifice. Perseus arrived just in time and killed the monster and married Andromeda.
