Title : Ovid project : metamorphosing the Metamorphoses

Description :
Taken from the rare book department of the University of Vermont, this website is an image database of engravings of illustrated works of Ovid by the 17th-century German artist, Johann Wilhelm Bauer (1607-1642). The exhibition is divided into two sections: images from 'The Metamorphoses' by Ovid, with engravings by Baur - the 1703 edition printed in Nuremberg; and secondly, Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' "Englished mythologized and represented in figures", translated by George Sandys - the 1640 edition. Other classical images from the Department of Classics at the University of Vermont are also available. This resource will be useful to anyone interested in the post-classical reception of the work of Ovid.
