Context: The ancient tale of Antiochus and Stratonice presented Ingres an opportunitiy to mingle classicism with eroticism. Antiochus, son of Seleucus, the king of Syria, lies in bed dying of frustrated love for his stepmother Stratonice, seen at the left. A doctor, hovering by the bed, has just discovered this forbidden love by placing his had over the boy's heart which, responding to Stratonice's presence, begins to beat rapidly. Seleucus, who kneels at the foot of the bed, later gave up his wife to cure hisson.Some areas of the canvas appear unfinished because this is Ingres' first version of the composition. The final version hangs in the Musée Condé, Chantilly, France.
