This is the original Gouache painting by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone.

This beautiful painting of Artemis the Goddess of the hunt being pursued by two centaurs, mythical half human half horse beasts, was painted by the twins Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone for Finding Out magazine.

The paisleyesque ferns and plants painted on the stark night background evoke a sense of the chase, concentration, narrowed vision and pounding hearts.

The twins would pass their paintings between each other, adding until they were entirely satisfied with the result.

In Greek mythology, Chiron was held to be the superlative centaur amongst his brethren. Chiron was notable throughout Greek mythology for his youth-nurturing nature. His personal skills tend to match those of Apollo, his foster father (sometimes along with Artemis.
