"Hylas and the nymphs"

John William Waterhouse - Oil - 132 x 198 cm - 1896 - (Manchester Art Gallery (Manchester, United Kingdom))

Hylas and the nymphs (1896) is an oil painting by the English Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse. When the ship of the Argonauts reached the island of Cios, Hylas, the young and handsome companion of Hercules, was sent ashore in search of water. He discovered a fountain, but the nymphs of the place were so enchanted by his beauty that they pulled him to the depths of their watery abode, and in spite of the cries of Hercules which made the shores reverberate with the name Hylas, the young man was never seen again.
