Averintsev : « L’attitude ovidienne à l’égard du mythe, qui exerça une influence globale sur la littérature et sur l’art européen des temps nouveaux — depuis la Renaissance jusqu’aux classiques du XIXe siècle —, est en elle-même un curieux phénomène spirituel. Mercure amenant Bacchus aux Nymphes Laurent de La Hyre, 1638 Huile sur toile, 112,5 x 135 cm Musée de l’Ermitage, Saint-Pétersbourg 30 31 Il faut souligner l’importance que revêt le jeu parfaitement conscient avec des motifs connus, « donnés » à l’avance et ordonnés en un système sémiotique unifié : Ovide s’applique à soumettre à un nivellement esthétique les différentes couches de la mythologie grecque et romaine afin d’obtenir une homogénéité complète.

Certes, il ne s’agit pas seulement d’emprunts faits aux textes d’Ovide : les clichés mythologiques figurent dans des tableaux inspirés par des sources littéraires plus tardives. La mythologie et la littérature romaines conservèrent leur influence pour plusieurs raisons.
