Raphael Dante first studied at the Academy of Rome prior to moving to the United States. He exhibited widely and with success, including at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts (1934-36), The Golden Gate Exposition (1936) and The Santa Barbara Museum of Art (1954). He was also the subject of numerous prestigious one-man exhibitions, including at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1954) and Art Institute of Chicago (1949) among others. Dante's work is held in the permanent collections of national and international museums including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The Lawrence Museum, and The Springfield Museum of Art. We are pleased to offer the artist's elegant interpretation of this venerable subject from classical mythology.
