Jupiter and Mercury in the House of Philemon and Baucis

Hendrik Goudt

Two lamps provide the only source of light in this nighttime interior and the scene is full of dark shadows and areas highlighted by white. Two men are seated at a table- one is a bearded man wearing long robes and the other has a staff and a hat with wings. They are looking at a woman, wearing a cloth headdress and a long dress, who stands before them. On the left is a man entering through a doorway. The features of the room are shown in great detail including the assortment of food, hanging vegetables and baskets, a wall tapestry, the rough wood planking and decorative designs on the bedding. There is a printed Latin inscription below this scene.

Dancing Satyr with Tambourine and Horn

Jacob Jordaens

This chalk drawing on laid paper is vertically oriented. It is executed in black and red chalk, heightened with white, on tan paper. The piece is dominated with a dancing child satyr with goat legs and curly hair. He is wearing a redish cape. With one foot on the ground and one in the air, he is visible from his right side and he holds a small horn and a tambourine. He looks to the sky with his mouth agape. Several blades of grass suggest the ground below him.
