    “…A few minutes later, a passing eaglenoticed it there.

    The eagle, having never before beenpresented with this classic opportunitycarried it off.

    The Eagle found keeping hold of it moredifficult than he had expected.

    He attempted to get a further grip on itwith his break.

    There was a wet sort of explosion,audible for several miles…."

    From The Beastly Baby, by Edward Gorey

    Once again, so far, this hasn’t appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog. If that changes, it’ll be among the paintings shown by the 5 link below.Ganymede in the clutches of the Eagle (AKA The Abduction of Ganymede or The Rape of Ganymede, link shows his Wikipedia page, shorter version) is shown, with a different coloration image (click-to-humongous image, compliments of its Google Cultural Institute page, better shows the artist’s dated signature, on the garment, to the right of the eagle’s beak), by its current-location page (Google translated).An earlier sketch (has objects not in the final painting, click-to-humongous image compliments of its Google Cultural Institute page), along with a description, can be found at its current-location page (Google translation shows one of the alternate titles, its GCI page has the other).Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here, along with a description (Jupiter is the Roman equivalent of Greek god Zeus). Another can be found here; but there are many different coloration, or detail, images of it available online.The artist’s Wikipedia page, list of paintings, and collection (much more available in the Subcategories at each level).Fifth, of the 5 other works, attributed by Mr. Melcher to this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here (6 so far).

    And today, Ganymede is still serving as a moon of Jupiter.

    “If you think I’m going to work all day and screw all night just to keep that eagle fed, you’re crazy!”

    At least the magnifying glass isn’t quite in the wrong place.

    I don’t see anything here that could be considered humorous.
