Problems? Your computer may refuse to show anything other than an empty box. If so, and you are using Windows 7 as the webmaster does, fixing the problem is most simple. Print the image you will come to here & follow the few instructions. In other browsers I presume that you would follow the same approach i.e. get to the 'Java' program on your computer & fix the security level.

Of course you do need to install 'Java' to be able to see it. Easily done! It installs quickly & it is free. Just click on 'Free Java Download' here.

This was, many years ago, my first attempt at applying the 'Lake' applet to a magnificent piece of art. The painting is by French artist Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825) & is entitled 'Mars Disarmed by Venus and the Three Graces'. It was painted in 1824. I found it in searching for data on the 'Three Graces' for another image on this site. I do hope you like it! The original painting is in the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.

The image is courtesy of a brilliant art site here, at Carol Gerten's Fine Art (CGFA), the work of Carol Gerten-Jackson. Do visit it. It truly is magnificent. If I understand Carol's wishes correctly, images can be used by a non-profit site such as this.

The image is also available on this site as a 'slider-puzzle'. See here.
