Glass Paperweight - Nicolas Poussin's A Bacchanalian Revel before a Term

Glass dome paperweight featuring a detail from Nicolas Poussin's painting A Bacchanalian Revel before a Term.

Nicolas Poussin was the most influential French painter of the 17th century, and an artist fascinated by dance. Portraying dancing nymphs and satyrs, he drew inspiration from ancient Greek and Roman sculpture but evolved a style all his own. This style would make Poussin the model for three centuries of artists in the French classical tradition, from Jacques-Louis David and Edgar Degas to Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso.
