The Greek poet Homer recounts how the heroic warrior Odysseus found refuge on the island of the nymph Calypso. The Trojan War is over: Amor, the god of love, now teasingly places the battle helmet on Calypso’s head. Odysseus and Calypso instantly fall in love. This painting hung in the Soestdijk hunting lodge, in the apartment of Mary Stuart, the consort of William III.
