The muse of epic poetry is represented with a zither in his hand, and in his hand, a paper with the inscription that Cesare Ripa attributes to him in his hymn "Calliope requies hominum, diuumq; voluptas" [Calliope, rest of men, his tribute and his pleasure] in this painting, where the classical themes of eighteenth-century taste are poured into a serene and tranquil format, within neoclassical postures.
