Terpsichore, muse of Dance and light Poetry

Discovered about 20 years ago, our painting was immediately identified by art historians as part of a group of several paintings depicting the Muses, all painted on oak and sharing the same height, four of them also having the same width, by Simon Vouet and Michel Dorigny. The muses were certainly intended to decorate a precious cabinet in some Parisian mansion, comparable to the Cabinet des Muses at Hotel Lambert.
