I’ve been researching for a new project, and it became clear to me that I needed to think a little about ekphrasis for this. So I spent the better part of the day compiling a collection of visual works engaging with Oreithyia, who in Ovid’s Metamorphoses is abducted and raped by Boreas, before becoming his wife, and bearing him four children for which he gives her immortality. Though not comprehensive (there are many more engravings as illustrations to editions of The Metamorphoses, and sculptures I’m sure) this is a modest collection spanning several centuries and mediums.
