From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia :
Roger Freeing Angelica or Ruggiero Freeing Angelica is an 1819 painting by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, inspired by Orlando Furioso by Ariosto. When it was exhibited at the 1819 Salon alongside his Grande Odalisque, the work was criticised for the treatment of Angelica's figure, described by the art historian Théophile Silvestre as "Angelica with goitres" and by the painter Henry de Waroquier as "triple-breasted Angelica". It was acquired by Louis XVIII and was Ingres' first painting to enter a public collection. He also produced a small copy of the painting, which he exhibited at the National Gallery, London, and an 1841 version, now in the Musée Ingres.
