„Of course I am downcast and tremble
with pity for my state
when old age and wrinkles cover me,


when Eros flies about
and I pursue the glorious young.
Pick up your lyre


and sing to us of her who wears
violets on her breasts. Sing especially
of her who is wandering.“

—  Safo, Fragment 58 Voigt

„I am at work on a girl. It is quite simple a girl getting up on the edge of her bed and pulling on her stockings. The bed is whitish, and in addition there are white sheets, a white nightdress, a bedside table with a white cover, white curtains and a blue wall. [as model for his painting 'Morning', 1884]“

— Edvard Munch Norwegian painter and printmaker 1863 - 1944
