‘Dance of the Nymphs’ – Donato Creti

161299

A classical pastoral fantasy in which a light-hearted “musical conversation” is taking place.  Australia’s National Gallery hosts the briefest of discussions.  The painting by Donato Creti (1671-1749), the visual equivalent of “tiddlywink music,” is from 1742.
