A Dance to the Music of Time by Nicolas Poussin
A study of Poussin's A Dance to the Music of Time, examining its meaning, the evolution of its composition, its visual sources and its critical fortune. The text argues that the painting is more representative of the philosophy of Poussin's patron, Giulio Rospigliosi, than the artist himself.
