IMAGES TO LINES FROM ANACREON MOORE
--------------------------------------------------------------------

It was Byron who nicknamed his friend, the Irish poet, Thomas Moore as Anacreon Moore, because he had translated so many of the poems attributed to this ancient lyric poet, said to have choked to death on a grape pip at the age of eighty-five.

An 1869 edition of the Odes of Anacreon brought Moore’s poems together with the Flaxman-like drawings of David’s pupil, Girodet de Roussey. “Stuart” thought it was time to update some of these illustrations.
