About this artwork

Artist Ryan Pickart layers art historical references in this sensual nude. The painting tells the Greek myth of Alcmene and Galanthis, in which Galanthis is transformed into a cat for helping Alcmene give birth to Heracles. In his signature style, Ryan adds pattern and texture in the surrounding fabric and flowers. The piece hints at elements of Neoclassical and Impressionist portraiture and Expressionist drapery.
