This is the original Gouache painting by Ralph Bruce.

The jovial satyr Silenus, with the aid of his glib tales and a goblet of wine, charms and entertains gullible King Midas. Midas and Silenus had a party for ten days with Silenus being returned to health.

Midas takes Silenus to Dionysus and as a reward is given one wish. It is then that Midas wishes that everything he touches should turn into gold. An original painting from Look and Learn's specialist in the world of theatre, Ralph Bruce.

Originally published in Look and Learn issue 698, 31st May 1975.
