Art History

The source of creativity has been a mystery since earliest times. The ancients attributed the miracle of inspiration to a divine source, namely the nine Muses who were the daughters of Zeus, the god of thunder and lightening, and Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. They presided over song and the different types of poetry, as well as the arts and sciences. Of these Muses, Thalia, was considered by the Greeks and Romans to be the Muse of comedy and pastoral poetry.
