Raub der Töchter des Leukippos

Alte Pinakothek


Castor and Pollux (Polydeuces), sons of Leda and Zeus, abducted Hilaeira und Phoebe, the daughters of King Leucippus of Argos, shortly before their wedding. - Rubens succeeded in accommodating four people and two horses in movement within a square canvas, while still preserving a certain degree of naturalness. An elaborate choreography forms the basis of the group.
