Featured work, "Orpheus Finding Eurydice," by Ferdinand Victor Eugene Delacroix. "The Greek myth of Orpheus's search for Eurydice and finding her at last stung by a serpent, carries the note of sadness sounded by the Autumn. The Summer idyl is past, with its vanished pleasures and opportunities. In accord with this mood the artist has given us here one of his most beautiful creations."
