"Ceres (Summer)" Antoine Watteau (1684-1721), Oil On Canvas, c. 1717-1718
Ceres, the goddess of the harvest, who presides over Summer, is shown as a young blond woman with poppies and cornflowers adorning her hair, wearing a white shift and a voluminous pink drapery. She wields a sickle as she sits on clouds among sheaves of wheat. The figures surrounding Ceres - the blond twins bearing sheaves, the crayfish, and the lion - represent the zodiacal symbols for the summer months (Gemini, Cancer, and Leo).
