Oedipus and the Sphinx

With the Inferno painting on one side, The Thinker in the middle, and this painting on the other side, gallery 800 is quite the show-stopper. Oil on canvas. The first two images were taken by me. The third was taken directly from the Met’s website. It was bit difficult to capture anything in this gallery due to the crowd.

Year: 1864
