Perseus Liberating Andromeda by Peter Paul Rubens
Social Issue: Lack of compassion in today’s world
Why I choose this painting: I choose this painting, because this is where the whole knight in shining armor rescuing the damsel in distress got started. If Perseus had not stopped on his journey home and rescue the helpless Andromeda, she would have been dead. She ended up tied and being sacrificed due to her mother’s vanity that angered some very powerful gods.
