This erotically-charged piece by Gustav Wertheimer depicts an ancient mariner locked in a rapturous kiss with a beautiful siren, who threatens to drown him in the fathomless depths of her passion. An Austrian painter associated with the symbolist movement, his nautical works include several variations on this motif, as well as numerous related pieces involving stormy waters, bare-skinned maidens, and the alluring dangers of the sea.
