Sample text

In the next fragment of yellowed correspondence, Puvis, now 70 years old, has begun work on a mural of the “inspiring muses” in his studio in Neuilly, France. In addition to erecting a 60-foot wall with a 2-story door in the center to replicate the Boston library space, he has made architectural models of the grand staircase and the arched loggia that opens onto the mural wall and has requested samples of the Italian marble that is being cut for the staircase, columns, and second floor hall. He sketches hundreds of life drawings using live models, distilling the images and framing them up, before he realizes that his Muses will have to fly over the mural meadow or they will appear to patrons ascending the staircase to be truncated at the waist by the second floor balustrade.

They apparently managed this feat by entering trance-like states in which they extemporized on well-known tales while relying on a deep familiarity with meter. Hesiod’s Theogony, written in the seventh or eighth century BCE, is the first known work to identify nine Muses by the names we associate with them, and to assign to each an art form such as epic poetry, history, sacred music, or dance. Their differentiation was superficial, however, for the Muses continued to be described as being “all of one mind”, perhaps because different art forms share a common creative process.
