Diana Surprised at her Bath (1836)

Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot: Diana Surprised at her Bath

A depiction of the myth of the goddess Diana who, upon discovering a mortal (Actaeon) has spied on her and her maidens bathing, turns him into a stag who is then torn apart by her hounds. You can see the small figure of Actaeon at the far left of the painting.
