Salon of 1785, n° 117: "painted sketches: Antiochus's Disease and the Birth of the Virgin"
The subject is taken from Plutarch: The doctor Erasistrate, called to Antiochus's bedside, understood the source of his illness. Son of Seleucus, king of Syria, Antiochus fell in love with his father's second wife, the beautiful Stratonice, daughter of the king of Macedonia. Questioned about what to do, Seleucus, to save his son, agrees to give him Stratonice.
