Scanned from a book printed in 1899. Original caption:

DIANA. Photo-engraving from the original marble statue in the Louvre at Paris.

The most celebrated of the existing statues of Diana is the Diana of Versailles, from Hadrian's villa at Tibur. It has been in France since the time of Henry IV. Formerly it was at Versailles, but it is now one of the treasures of the Louvre. It plainly belongs to the school of the Apollo Belvedere, and there is no reson why it might not have formed a part of the group in which the Apollo stood. Diana is represented as a slender huntress, leading her hind and hastening forward, as if in pursuit of game. She looks toward the right, as, with raised arm, she is about to draw an arrow from the quiver.
