The Muse of Music

Euterpe Coloring Activity

The image to the right is an engraving by Thomas Trevelyon. The woman is Euterpe, the muse of music.This is one from a series of nine muses, a very popular theme in early modern England. 


Looking closely at the image, you can see that she plays a straight trumpet in her right hand and holds a strange wind instrument with characteristics of both shawn (a double reed instrument) and recorder in her left hand. At her feet and beside her are a bagpipe, crumhorn, case of flutes, flute, cornett, and trumpet. Trevelyon copied engavings.
