Notes

Summary:
His model poses with the attributes of Clio, the Muse of History: the laurel wreath, the trumpet and a book. Equally important to the allegory are the elements of a still life on the table: treatises on painting, a mask or sculpting study and a sketch book. The map of the 17 provinces of the Low Countries before their partition in 1581 is also significant. Probably the allegory, in which illusion and reality flow together, is to be understood on many different levels: the Muse of History inspires the painter and proclaims the fame of the regions painting tradition as immortalised in history.
