SAPPHO

b. 612 B.C., Greece

Born on the island of Lesbos, Sappho was one of the greatest lyric poets of Western civilization. She became a renowned teacher, and many women gathered around her to learn the arts of poetry, music, and dancing. She was known for poems expressing her love of women, often in openly erotic terms. Because Sappho came from the isle of Lesbos, the word “lesbian” has come to mean a woman who loves women.

Sappho was known as the “flower of the Graces” and her plate, which draws upon this reference, is painted in green and lavender: colors associated with this amazing woman.
