The goddesses of dawn tend to be associated with mirth, revelry, profligacy. This is not only true for the mostly equivalent Aurora and Eos, but also for the rather different Bast, and even the Japanese Ama-no-Uzume. This Aurora was painted by Fragonard in 1755 or 1756. It is about 131×95 cm in size, but I could not find out its location.
