Saturn (Chronos) and Four Seasons Another Fine Quality Print from Martin2001 THE early history of Greece is just a mass of legends wherein history and fable blend inextricably and facts loom doubtfully. The earliest of the legends deal with the gods, and of these gods we are told that the first of all, creator of all things, was Uranus, or heaven, who had for wife Gaea, or earth. To these two were born many children, chief of whom was Saturn, or Chronos, the god of time, from whom come our words chronology, chronometer, etc. Chronos rebelled against his father and deposed him; or, in other words, active, swift-flying time took the place of immovable eternity. During the reign of Chronos men were born and peopled the earth. Then Chronos was in his turn dethroned by his son Zeus, or Jupiter, the thunderer, the god who typifies the rule of intellect over mere earthly force. Thus Chronos in his old age was exiled from heaven, the region of the gods, and dwelt on earth among men. He made his home in Italy, where he taught men so much that they all lived in peace and wisdom and ever after looked back to the time of Chronos as “the golden age.” The picture shows him in his age, with the typical wings of time's flight, and the scythe with which he cuts all things short. Around him are his children, the four seasons, and their children, the tiny baby hours.

Narrative: At the end of the 19th Century, photography was becoming the medium of choice for making prints of the original works of art. Until then, the engraving was the predominant medium used for this purpose. The engravers, challenged by this new competitive medium, were perfecting their skills and creating wood engravings of unparalleled accuracy, quality and beauty. They became works of art in their own right. The print offered here for sale is one of those works of art. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
