Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) fica a parte de seus contemporâneos realistas e impressionistas do século XIX na França, particularmente nas qualidades místicas e enigmáticas que caracterizam suas pinturas de temas bíblicos e mitológicos.

Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) stands apart from his Realist and Impressionist contemporaries in nineteenth-century France, particularly in the mystical and enigmatic qualities that characterize his paintings of biblical and mythological subjects.

Pintada entre 1874 e 1876, Dança de Salomé diante de Herodes fez sensação quando foi exibida pela primeira vez em Paris, no Salão de 1876, e é sem dúvida a obra mais importante de Moreau.

Painted between 1874 and 1876, Salome Dancing before Herod created a sensation when it was exhibited for the first time in Paris at the Salon of 1876, and is arguably Moreau’s most important work.

A história da filha de Herodíades, cuja dança sedutora adiante de seu padrasto e tio, Herodes, persuadiu o rei envelhido a conceder-lhe a cabeça de João Batista, é derivado de duas passagens nos Evangelhos de Mateus e Lucas. Salomé dançando a mando de sua mãe Herodias, que queriam silenciar João Batista de ir contra seu casamento incestuoso de Herodes, o irmão de seu marido assassinado.


The story of the daughter of Herodias, whose seductive dance before her stepfather and uncle, Herod, persuaded the aging king to grant her the head of John the Baptist, is derived from two passages in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Salome danced at the behest of her mother Herodias, who wanted to silence John the Baptist from railing against her incestuous marriage to Herod, the brother of her murdered husband.
