Leighton Eucharis Girl with basket of fruit CC0672 Poster

Poster inspired by a beautiful painting by Frederic Leighton (Eucharis or A girl with a basket of fruit, c.1863). Eucharis does not appear in Greek mythology, she is a charachter in a 17th century improvisation upon Homeric themes (François Fénelon, The adventures of Telemachus, 1699). In the novel Telemachus, while searching for his father, Odysseus, has been shipwrecked on Calypso's island, and there has fallen in love with Eucharis.
