Thomas Pitilli’s re-interpretation of a famous sculpture

Here’s a recent illustration I made based on the tale of Pygmalion and Galatea. As the tale goes, Pygmalion falls deeply in love with the sculpture he created, wishing that he could find a wife as beautiful as she. The goddess Venus then grants him this wish by bringing the sculpture to life. The first time I became familiar with this tale was when I saw a painting inspired by it at the Metropolitan Museum of Art years ago. Ever since, it has been my favorite painting in the museum. Many artists have tackled this particular story over the years, but Jean-Léon Gérôme’s is by far my favorite.
