Description

The canvas is part of a nucleus of works from Palazzo Cattaneo Adorno acquired by the National Gallery of Liguria. Like the other two compositions, from the same monumental format with Mercury and Argos and Perseus and Andromeda , the painting represents an episode of the Metamorphoses of the Latin poet Ovid.

Here we witness the desperate escape of Siringa, chased by the god Pan, shortly before her transformation into marsh reeds. The nymph will carry out her own metamorphosis thanks to the intervention of the Naiads, represented on the left, who will thus save her from the cravings of Pan. He will find himself embracing a bundle of reeds and, enchanted by the sound of the wind that passes through them, he will invent his flute, also called a syringe in honor of the nymph.
