Honoré de Balzac
The Hidden Masterpiece
(Le Chef-d’oeuvre inconnu)
Translated by Katharine Prescott Wormeley

A short story about the nature of artistic creativity; set in the early seventeenth century. The central character is the young Nicholas Poussin so (for reasons that will become clear) I have added an illustration of one of Poussin’s nudes.
