NOTES

The oceanids (Greek ωκεανίδες, pronounced ‘o-ke-a-nith-es’, with the stress on the fourth syllable) were nymphs associated primarily with the sea, but also with other water sources clouds, breezes, rivers, springs and flowers. Annie’s other Greco-Roman nature deities – the oreads, dryads and the bacchantes – all appears to have been painted in the first decade of the 1900s.
