Captive Andromache' by Charles Roberts after Sir Frederick Leighton; published as a supplement to the Graphic. The original painting is in the Manchester City Gallery. The painting was inspired by Homer's 'Iliad'. Andromache was the wife of the Trojan hero Hector. Hector was killed during the Trojan War, and his wife was taken captive by the victorious Greeks. Andromache eventually became the mistress of the conquering hero Neoptolemus (the son of Achilles). She was treated as a prize of war, and forced to accompany her new master to Epirus.
