The following paintings and bronze sculpture are presented in the offices of Travis Law Group. Click to enlarge each piece.

  • Telemachus and Calypso

    Benjamin West. Circa 1800. This painting arises from the lore of the Iliad and the Odyssey. It depicts the confrontation between Odysseus' son, Telemachus, and Calypso, the nymph who had held Odysseus captive on her island for 7 years. The extended Greek lore of the Odyssey is that Telemachus, after learning of his father's time with Calypso, confronted her to fend for his mother's honor. Benjamin West, true to his reputation of epic scenes in a neoclassical style, displays in this painting the talent that vaulted him to prominence in the late 1700s. This painting was purchased from Southwest Galleries in Dallas, Texas.

  • The Rescue of Pyrus

    This painting is an adaptation from Poisson's famous painting by the same name that hangs in the Louvre. It was commissioned for the firm in 2003 to match the style and theme of the famous Benjamin West painting. It was painted by Ty Milner, a local Dallas artist of some repute, known for his striking paintings of women in various states of repose.

  • St. Michael Slaying the Devil

    It is adapted from a painting by Guido Reni which was commissioned in 1626 as an altar piece for the Santa Maria del Concezion in Rome. The sculpture depicts the Archangel, Michael, in the final act of slaying Satan. It was purchased from Art D'Italia, in Plano, Texas.

  • Untitled

    Oil on canvas by Scott Lee in 1999. The scene depicts the artist's rendition of the ruins of the Roman Coliseum and the Arc of Constantine or Colosseo ed Arco di Constantino. The painting was purchased from Southwest Galleries, Dallas, Texas.

  • Untitled

    Oil on canvas by an unknown artist. The painting was removed from a church in Belgium and purchased from international art dealer, Guy Poelvoorde.

It is, of course, a depiction of the Annunciation, when the Angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she would give birth to the Christ child.
