Demeter Mourning Persephone by Evelyn de Morgan (1906).
In Greek Mythology Demeter is the Goddess of the bountiful harvest (amongst other things). Demeter loses her daughter Persephone to the god Hades and the Underworld. During her sorrowful search for her daughter she turns the earth into a desolate wasteland and starves the people.
In the end Demeter is reunited with her daughter but only for part of each year, the rest of the time Hades gets her.
