Lining and accidents. 81 x 115 cm. Related work : Henri Pierre Picou, The Birth of Pindar, 1848, oil on canvas, 114 x 146 cm, Paris, Musée d'Orsay. 25 years later, Picou produced a new version of his famous painting, now in the Musée d'Orsay. The general composition remains the same, although the oval view is changed to a rectangular format, but on closer inspection, Apollo has given way to Calliope with her lyre in her hands, while Love this time bends his bow. In this way, a number of significant details alter the original composition.
