About the Work

Inspired by the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphosis, John Fox has created a haunting narrative of the death of Procris at the hands of her husband. Painted in 1987, this oil on canvas depicts the historical iconography -- the bent hand of Procris, the elongated limbs and mournful dogs -- but has juxtaposed them within an ominous netherworld.
