After "La Toilette d'Atalante" by Jean-Jacques Pradier, 1850. Louvre, Paris

"Atalanta, is a character in Greek mythology, a virgin huntress and runner. She agreed to marry only if her suitors could outrun her in a footrace. Those who lost would be killed. King Schoeneus agreed, and many young men died in the attempt until Hippomenes came along. Hippomenes asked the goddess Aphrodite for help, and she gave him three golden apples in order to slow Atalanta down.

In this way, Hippomenes won the footrace and came to marry Atalanta" - Wikipedia
