"Paris," Léonard Limosin (1505-1577). The Renaissance National Museum presents a series of painted enamels belonging to a decorative scheme devised by Leonard Limosin from Ovid's poem "The Heroides". These plates were designed to adorn a paneled cabinet for an unknown partner; the artist has chosen his subject - the legendary couples of antiquity - as refined portraits on deep blue background, with a striking face and very expressive.
