The Soul Breaking the Ties That Bind It to Earth. Possibly Prud’hon’s last work, the huge painting — more than nine feet tall — personifies the soul as a voluptuous young woman with wings, leaping upward toward the light. “She is nude,” wrote Eugene Delacroix, “having loosed the heavy mantle of this mortal life, which lies in a heap at ther feet.” via: artnet
