Regular price €2.000,00

Tax included.
This mythological painting from the mid-18th century depicts La Muse Erato, absorbed in a state of contemplation.
She has a stilus in his hand, he poses on sheets on which he will write the newly composed poems.
Next to her we see Eros, with the post's fame heralding trumpet and a flute.
For the ancient Greeks, Erato was one of the 9 muses, the patron saint of love and lyrical poetry. It is very easy to confuse him with another muse - Terpsichore, who is represented with an instrument very similar to the ancient zither - the lyre.
On the head - laurel wreath of the poets.
