Nicolas Poussin

As many others artists who get inspired by Greek mythology, Nicolas Poussin, a leading French painter of classicism, creates many landscapes with scenes of ancient Greece and its mythology. Four of them (with Polyphemus, Diogenes, Orpheus and Eurydice, and a man killed by a snake) are etched and engraved by Etienne Baudet, who dedicates them to King Louis XIV.
