About

Gorgeous sterling silver cigarette box / case with enamel painting covering lid: female nude called 'the source', once created by the famous french neoclassical painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867).

The lid is decorated with stunning enamel painting - following scene is visible there: 'A female nude standing upright between an opening in the rocks and holding in her hands a pitcher, from which water flows. She thus represents a water source or spring which, in classical literature, is sacred to the Muses and a source of poetic inspiration. She stands between two flowers, with their "vulnerability to males who wish to pluck them", and is framed by ivy, plant of Dionysus - the god of disorder, regeneration, and ecstasy. The water she pours out separates her from the viewer, as rivers mark boundaries of which the crossing is symbolically important.' [Wikipedia].

Jean A.-D. Ingres completed the referring oil painting on canvas in year 1856
(the original picture is nowadays in Musée d'Orsay, Paris).
