MELLER, Peter

Description

Regina Sublimi Flagello
This image makes little sense unless one is able to recognize it as the illustration of a line from one of the odes of the ancient Roman poet Horace: Queen, raise your whip. Frustrated because the woman he admires is indifferent to him, Horace urges Venus, the goddess of love, to use your whip to awaken the womans desire for him. - Imogen Harper-Donnelly
