The “Arts” of the Nine Muses

The “Arts” of the Nine Muses

The Nine Muses in Greek mythology have been an inspiration to artists since antiquity. They are (in alphabetical order): Calliope, Clio, Erato, Euterpe, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalia, and Urania. They are the daughters of Zeus, the Greek father of all gods, and Mnemosyne.

The Muses were nine beautiful young women who were the goddesses and personifications of Science, Literature and the Arts. They were the source in the ancient culture of orally related knowledge in poetic lyrics and myths.

They were considered to be the complete inspiration of knowledge and the arts The “Arts of the Muses” were; Music, Science, Philosophy, Mathematics, Geography, Drama and especially Art. It was felt that the inspiration of the Muses would help people succeed and prosper. Some of the modern words associated with the Muses are amuse, museum, musing and music.

Greek Mythology is rich with gods and goddesses but none were as influential as the Nine Muses who were created to give inspiration, knowledge, artistry and music to the ancient world.

Emma O’neil created and founded The 9 Muses (UK) Ltd in early 2014 after a long passion with working with well known, famous and prolific Artists. This also led the company on to doing some bigger scale commissions and projects that have a big charity element and a massive focus on Education.

The 9 Muses projects have included producing Documentaries, publishing books, producing original score music and sponsoring The World’s First Phd in a subject relating to the Famous “Brother Walfrid” Oil painting that The 9 Muses Commissioned by Peter Howson.

Therefor the 9 Muses name is very fitting as the company's goals, products and practices transcend over many mediums and ‘art forms’ The 9 Muses aims to bring core Scottish and Glaswegian History, new educational studies and Scientific research to the masses through the means of Art with the added hope of giving inspiration and faith. The 9 Muses spends an immense amount of time and effort investing in the brand of each artist they represent. We all have that spark of a Muse within us to aid in our creative endeavors.
