Hercules and Omphale is an original painting realized in France between the end of the XVIII and the beginning of the XIX Century. Wishing to expiate the murder of one of his friends, Hercules consulted the oracle of Apollo, who advised him to enter the service of Omphale, Queen of Lydia. Although Hercules was the son of Zeus and was famed for his invincible strength di lui, he submitted to the tasks the queen devised for him to expiate his crime di lui. Omphale fell in love with Hercules for his strength and physical beauty di lui, and the couple married. This tale, found in both Greek and Roman mythology, is told with a number of variations. It proved a great source of inspiration for French and Italian Mannerist painters, as well as the Venetian artists who influenced Lemoyne. François Boucher also painted a version of the same love scene.
