“Ulysses and the Sirens”
Author: Herbert James Draper (English, 1863-1920)
Date: ca. 1909
Medium: Oil on canvas
Location: Ferens Art Gallery, Hull Museums, UK
The depiction of the sirens is an interesting one as artists usually represented them as birds with women’s heads. Draper, however, depicts them as mermaids who change into young women as they climb aboard. We see a boat full of muscly sailors apparently terrified by three nude girls.
This work was done later in Draper’s career, when he was a married man, and contrasts dramatically with an earlier work by him, The Sea Maiden, which shows the sailors as the aggressors.
