Sappho was an Ancient Greek poet, born on the island of Lesbos. Later
Greeks included her in the list of nine lyrics poets. Her birth was
sometime between 630 and 612 BC, and it is said that she died around 570
BC, but little is known for certain about her life. The bulk of her
poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired throughout antiquity,
has been lost, but her immense reputation has endured through surviving
fragments. Born in Paris, Henri Alphonse Nelson attended the Ecole Des
Beaux-Arts and exhibited at the Paris Salon beginning1882. He won an
honourable mention in1889.
