Arachne (A Sibyl) is a oil painting by the Spanish painter Diego Velazquez. It was painted in 1644-48. This picture is also connected with Arachne, like the famous Las Hilanderas. It presents something of a problem: what is the dark-haired young woman pointing to on the empty panel in front of her? She may be either Arachne seen as the personification of painting, or a Sibyl or prophetess pointing to the future. This painting (64 x 58 cm) is currently housed in the Meadows Museum, Dallas.
