One of my favourite paintings is Sapphos and Phaon created by Jacques-Louis David in oil in 1809. Sapphos, the tenth muse, is a woman of beauty and strength. There is one particular painting where she exudes tenacity and her limbs are sinewy, regal and elegant all at once. I am trying to locate the painting online so I can have one framed for my living room. It is quite becoming for a lesbian couple to have Sapphos of Lesbos erected on their wall.
