I love really the pastoral art, like for example the painting "Les Bergers d’Arcadie” (The Arcadian Shepherd) by Nicolas Poussin, or in music, the “Pastoral Symphony” of Ludwig van Beethoven. I remind also of Virgil’s Bucolics, and especially of the second of this roman poet, which begins in latin language :
" Formosum pastor Corydon ardebat Alexim,
Delicias domini: nec quid speraret habebat... ".
(For the beautiful Alexis, darling of his master, Corydon, a shepherd, was burning love with no hope...
This is a beautiful story that could inspire Marco, our favorite artist !...

J’aime beaucoup l’art pastoral, comme par exemple le tableau « Les Bergers d’Arcadie » de Nicolas Poussin,
ou en musique, la symphonie Pastorale de Ludwig van Beethoven.
Je pense aux Bucoliques du poète romain Virgile, et spécialement à la IIème qui commence ainsi en latin :
« Formosum pastor Corydon ardebat Alexim,
Delicias domini : nec quid speraret habebat…”
(Pour le bel Alexis, chéri de son maître, Corydon, un berger, brûlait d’amour sans aucun espoir…)
Voilà encore un beau sujet qui pourrait inspirer Marco, notre artiste favori.
