LE SUEUR, Eustache
(b. 1616/17, Paris, d. 1655, Paris)

The Muse Terpsichore

Oil on panel, 116 x 74 cm
Musée du Louvre, Paris

The Muse Terpsichore is obviously part of an extensive decoration (this panel is part of the decoration of the Cabinet of the Muses of the Hôtel Lambert in Paris), but the artist made no concessions to decorative charm, and the figure conforms closely to the ideals of classical antiquity.
