William Etty: Andromeda, Perseus Coming to Her Rescue, c.1840.
Guido Reni: Perseus and Andromeda, c. 1635.
This is the original in the Pallavicini collection in Rome, not the copy in London. The colors of the reproduction are probably somewhat off.
Perseus and Andromeda, fresco from the House of the Dioscuri in Pompeii.
Omg this tumblr just posted so many versions of Perseus and Andromeda that I haven’t seen before so it is my new favorite.
François Lemoyne: Perseus and Andromeda, 1723.
There is a remarkable similarity between this painting and Paolo Veronese’s treatment of the same subject one and a half centuries earlier. It is not a copy, I doubt that Lemoyne put up his easel in front of the older painting the way Rubens did with the works of Titian. But undoubtedly he had seen it and had it in mind when he created his own work. As a side effect, these two paintings are among the few that get the motif right and do not put Perseus on the Pegasus. And it is a good example for how much, in general, French painting of the 18th century was indebted to the Venetian school.
