Nicolas Poussin: Parnassus

Parnassus by French Classical Baroque painter Nicolas Poussin is also known as Apollo and the Muses and possibly the figure to the right in the blue robe is Apollo, god of poetic inspiration. Poussin painted Partassus in 1631 and modelled it on Raphael’s treatment of a similar scene of Parnassus, the home of the Muses, a Fresco painting from 1511 in Apostolic Palace, Vatican City.

Nicolas Poussin: Parnassus is in the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain
