Greek Mythology

Jason and Medea is an oil painting in the Pre-Raphaelite style created by John William Waterhouse in 1907.

The painting depicts the Colchian princess, Medea, preparing a magic potion for Jason to enable him to complete the tasks set for him by her father, Aeëtes.

Medea's determined facial expression shows a characterization consistent with that of Greek literature, particularly Euripides' tragedy Medea (play).

The painting is thematically and visually similar to The Magic Circle (Waterhouse painting).
