Explore the paintings

The shepherd Endymion, renowned for his beauty, was sent to sleep by the moon goddess Selene so that she might embrace him unobserved. Selene later became identified with the goddess Diana.

Subleyras trained in France, but in 1728 he went to Rome where he stayed for the rest of his life.
