The story of Achilles

This beautiful silk embroidered picture depicts the intriguing story of Achilles at the court of Lycomedes. It also demonstrates that these highly educated young ladies attending academies in the early 19 century, were among other things, studying Greek mythology.

On the back is an early hand written note describing the subject, the artist, the date, the school, and some provenance.
