The term suggests a lifelong happiness obtained when one’s philosophical needs are satisfied, resembling the idea of enlightenment through harmonious living. It is a nearly lost Classical ideal, but is enjoying some revival today with its emphasis on individuals to live within the proportions of reason and nature, this being achieved through practical wisdom and self-knowledge

    ooooh..I do love this for so many reasons, not the least of which is the “triangle of eyes” each one moving
    the viewers eyes around your canvas; those huge hands and the carved chair back.
    Oh, AND the luscious light.
    Love it, Tom…!
