Lilith by John Collier. Lilith was said to be the wife that Adam had before Eve; she is a figure of terror, feared as a demon or vampire, and a night monster. She is also known as Lamia; Keats describes her as a serpent which assumed the shape of a beautiful woman 'palpitating snake ... of dazzling hue, vermillion spotted, golden, green and blue', and it is this image which seems to have captured Collier's imagination. The subject also attracted John William Waterhouse and the Symbolists.

John Collier - Lilith -- In folklore Lilith was the first wife of Adam made of Earth as Adam. When she refused to be submissive she was banished from The Garden of Eden and Adam was given Eve. Eve was made from his rib to ensure her obedience to Adam.

"Nymphs and Satyr" (Pan) 1873, by William Bouguereau. At it's debut in 1873, Bouguereau set the scene with a quotation from the first century Latin poet Publius Statius, describing the goat god Pan: “Conscious of his shaggy hide, and from childhood untaught to swim, he dares not trust himself to the deep waters,” In Bouguereau’s imaginative depiction of Pan’s predicament, four sprites gleefully drag the swarthy satyr into the water as a second bevy of nudes approaches.

Adolphe William Bouguereau's painting Nymphs and Satyr once hanged in New York City's Hoffman House Grand Saloon. Today it belongs to the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
