Orpheus and Eurydice

Style of Nicolas Poussin French

Not on view

When one of The Met’s greatest benefactors, Louisine Havemeyer (1855–1929), purchased this landscape in 1907, it was thought to be by Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665). Today it is generally believed to be by a seventeenth-century imitator, perhaps copied from a lost original by Poussin.
