Pogany could really hit the high notes.

Willy Pogany — Sirens—Temptations of Ulysses

Very beautiful piece :-)

Exquisite. Reminds me of Norman Lindsay to some extent.

Yeah. That's an iconic image. The way the sirens are positioned creates a visual parallel to the rising, beckoning flow of the music.

Likewise, the sense that Ulysses is straining against the ropes is clear through the posturing, even though the details are few.

It's an awesome image.
