Usually, I relate a myth or legend when I post the first work of art based on it. But Richard Westall’s Vertumnus and Pomona, just like its earlier counterpart Flora Unveiled by Zephyrs, isn’t interested very much in its mythological model, so I’ll leave that for another time. The two paintings are each about 59×77 cm in size and were sold by Christie’s for £43,250 in December 2008. Accurate or not, they sure look nice!
