Henri Regnault (French; 1843–1871)
Automédon ramenant les coursiers d’Achille des bords du Scamandre = Automedon Bringing the Horses of Achilles to the Banks of the Scamander
Oil on wood, 1868
Musée du Louvre, Paris

The brave Automedon (an honour’d name,
The second to his lord in love and fame,

In peace his friend, and partner of the war)
The winged coursers harness’d to the car;
Xanthus and Balius, of immortal breed,
Sprung from the wind, and like the wind in speed.
Homer, Iliad, Book XVI (translated by Alexander Pope)
