Greek The ferryman of the Underworld (1). Son of Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night). The hideous old man ferried the shades, or spirits, of the dead across the rivers Acheron and Styx.

Ceto

(Whale) Greek An ancient Greek sea goddess. Ceto was a daughter of Gaia and Pontus, the earliest personification of the sea.

Ceres

Roman An ancient goddess of living things, of grains and other plants. The cult of Ceres appears to predate 600 b.c. when she was likely seen as a foundation goddess, a variation of the Earth Mother. Ceres provided protection for the life cycle of plants, a very important function in an agricultural society. Legends give Ceres credit for being the first to harvest...

Cercopes

Greek Twins, sons of the Titans Oceanus and Theia. They were mischievous, clever thieves, sometimes depicted as monkeys.

Heracles was so disarmed by the jokes and good humor of the twins that he set them free....

Cerberus

Greek The hound of Hades, guardian of the Underworld (1). Cerberus was the offspring of Typhon and Echidna. In some accounts, Cerberus had three heads; in others, as many as 50. He was a fearsome creature, but music and offerings of food calmed him. For Heracles, bringing Cerberus from Hades to the upper world was his 12th and most difficult labor. When he was captured,...

Castor and Pollux

("The Heavenly Twins") Greek and Roman The twin gods known to the Greeks and Romans as the Dioscuri (Sons of Zeus). The story of these brothers began in Greece, where Pollux was known as Polydeuces, and where they are the subjects of many popular stories.

Cassiopeia

Greek Wife of King Cepheus of Ethiopia; mother of Andromeda and of Atymnius, by Zeus. Cassiopeia boasted that she and her daughter were more beautiful than the sea Nymphs, or Nereids, daughters of the god Poseidon.

Wheatfield Under Threatening Skies with Crows, Auvers-sur-Oise 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

'What am I in most people's eyes? A nonentity, or an eccentric and disagreeable man - somebody who has no position in society and never will have, in short, the lowest of the low. Very well, even if this were true, then I should want my work to show what is in the heart of such an eccentric,...

The Church at Auvers-sur-Oise, 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

When Van Gogh returned to Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, he immediately began painting the local inhabitants and the surrounding area. As he wrote, '...once back here I set to work again...though the brush almost slipped from my fingers, but knowing exactly what I wanted, I have painted three more big canvases since.* 'They are vast fields of wheat under troubled...

Road with Men Walking, Carriage, Cypress, Star and Crescent Moon, St-Remy 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

In this powerful painting Van Gogh combined several of his most favoured images. As he said eight years previously: 'There is something infinite in painting - I cannot explain it to you so well -but it was so delightful just for expressing one's feeling. There are hidden harmonies or contrasts in colours which involuntarily combine to work together...

The Exercise Yard, St-Remy 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh copied this work from a print of Newgate Prison, London, by Gustave Dore. It may have been influenced by how Van Gogh felt while a patient at the hospital in St-Remy and by the poor condition of the other inmates. As he wrote to his brother Theo, 'My surroundings here begin to weigh on me...I can't...

Fountain and Garden of Asylum, St-Remy 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

This is an extremely spacious view of the asylum gardens where Van Gogfa was first treated after his break with Gauguin and the episode of the cut ear. The gardens look delightful: colourful and full of light. Although it is still winter this is an optimistic-looking picture, especially as the high viewpoint gives us such a wide vista...

Memory of the Garden at Etten, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

'During my illness I saw again every room in the house at Zundert, every path, every plant in the garden, the views of the fields outside, the neighbours, the graveyard, the church, our kitchen garden at the back - down to the magpie's nest in a tall acacia in the graveyard. It's because I still have earlier recollections...

The Night Cafe, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

'In my picture of The Night Cafe, I have tried to express the idea that the cafe is a place where one can ruin oneself, go mad or commit a crime. So I have tried to express, as it were, the powers of darkness in a low public house, by soft Louis XV green and malachite, contrasting with...

Sower with a Setting Sun, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

The theme of the sower was significant for Van Gogh, and probably began when he copied Millet's The Sower in 1880. Millet was his early artistic hero and at one time Van Gogh said that a picture by Millet said more than most clergymen's sermons. He was most impressed by his work and considered him the greatest modern...

Vase with Cornflowers and Poppies, Paris 1887 - Vincent Van Gogh

This is an interesting variation on Van Gogh's usual tendency towards yellowish flowers; brilliant red, white and blue flowers, in a pale blue vase on a warm-coloured tablecloth, against a deep blue wall. ...
