Jupiter and Thetis

1811: Musée Granet, Aix-Provence

Thetis, the mother of Achilles, is seen here appealing to Jupiter. Thetis begged him to make the Greeks repent of their injustice to Achilles by granting success to the Trojan arms. Jupiter consented, and in the battle which ensued the Trojans were completely successful. The Greeks were driven from the field and took refuge in their ships.
