The Cyclops (Redon)
The Cyclops is a painting by Odilon Redon depicting the myth of the love of the cyclops Polyphemus for the naiad Galatea who is shown lying naked . It appears Polyphemus has hidden himself from the nymph, behind the rocky terrain, too shy to directly confront her "helpless" form. The Cyclops seems to love his victim, gingerly guarding her while simultaneously keeping her selfishly to himself.
The painting is exhibited at the Kröller-Müller Museum in the Netherlands.
