I’m looking for a specific painting from a Greek mythology book that I forgot the name of. Can someone help?

It was of a girl bound with white ribbons and I thought it was by John William Waterhouse, but when I looked through his paintings, it wasn’t there. It was a few years ago, so I don’t know any more details, but I think it was in the Pandora’s Box section, so it may have been Hope, but I’m not too sure.

  1. I’ve been checking through the Pre-Raphaelites as I assume it must be this style if you thought it was Waterhouse.

    Dante Gabriel Rossetti also painted a picture of Pandora (Link 1), and Edward Coley Burne-Jones painted a picture of Hope (Link 2). Edward Burne-Jones created a stained glass window called “Hope” (Link 3).

    Rossetti’s painting is closest to your description. She is not bound with white bandages, but she is dressed in white.

    This is probably not the one – but thought I’d try, you never know !

    PS. I’m not sure on what basis Correggio was suggested to you, but don’t waste your time.
