  • Le Petit Palais - Oinochoe with a trefoil-shaped mouth - petitpalais.paris.fr
    of the Little Masters who decorated cups with black figures It is to this vase acquired by the collector Auguste Dutuit that the painter whose identity is unknown owes his nickname This scene expresses all the delicacy characteristic of his style taken almost to the point of preciousness The winged goddess Artemis is standing in right profile She holds a bow and arrow in her left hand and with the tips of the fingers of her right hand she lightly strokes a young fawn which is facing her Her bare feet indicating close contact with nature contrast with her elegant finery a delicately embroidered tunic a pendant necklace bracelets and hair styled in a high bun with ringlets escaping from a broad draped headband or cecryphale Over her left shoulder is a lidded quiver containing her arrows held in place by a shoulder strap The smallness of the fawn and its huge ears betray its extreme youth With trusting innocence it is lifting its muzzle to respond to the invitation of the goddess whose fingers encircle it without touching it Fearless it is completely in Artemis power as is highlighted by the elements of the composition the fawn s hooves are almost touching the goddess its long ears look as if they are trapped between the bow and its string and they exchange glances The painter subtlety conveys the hold the goddess has over all forms of animal life Her deadly bow is temporarily stilled and her arrow points skyward Artemis will surround the fawn with her warmth and protection until it reaches maturity Yet Artemis has appeared as a winged deity since the archaic period in the guise of Mistress of the Animals Potnia Therôn She is always depicted full face flanked to either side symmetrically by animals often
