Original oil on canvas painting by local Columbus, Ohio artist Ron Arps titled “Pleiades” features a nude woman with deep, brooding shadows against a warm yet neutral background. Her curvaceous shape and compelling mystery create a striking portrait. The title “Pleiades” is a Greek mythological reference to the companions of Artemis, who were the seven daughters of Atlas, the titan. Pursued by Orion after their father Atlas began shouldering the heavens, Zeus made the daughters into doves before transforming them into stars to provide comfort to their father. It is said that Orion’s constellation continues to pursue them across the heavenly sky. Signature and maker’s mark found on front and back, titled and dated 2001 on reverse of canvas.
