John Singer Sargent, Pagan Gods, 1895.

In my opinion, the mural ensemble The Triumph of Religion, commissioned by the Boston Public Library, was the only really interesting painting John Singer Sargent ever did. His Pagan Gods, which adorns the north end of the vaulted ceiling, is a great example of a painter from another style accidentally making a Symbolist work.
