Muse of Mine: Et Toujours! Et Jamais!

Muse of Mine: Et Toujours! Et Jamais!

While visiting The Museum of Fine Arts in Montréal several months ago, I discovered this terracotta sculpture by Emile Hébert. It has haunted my thoughts, in the loveliest of ways, ever since. This striking work almost made Hébert famous after causing a sensation at the Salon of French Artists in Paris (1859).
