Nymphs of Parthenope (1827)

Charles Meynier: Nymphs of Parthenope, taking away from their shores the Penates, images of their gods to be conducted by the Goddess of Fine Arts on the banks of the Seine

Here at last is my background image! So I will poll my audience: do you want a new background image? Maybe I'll use something from the 1850 time frame (so during the life of the blog I'll have four backgrounds, one from each quarter century).
