    schema:description ""Mary D. Sheriff uses these very different visions of enthusiasm to explore the complex interrelationships among creativity, sexuality, the body, and the mind in eighteenth-century France.

For instance, the mythical sculptor Pygmalion was cured of an abnormal love for his statues through the making of art. He became a model for creative artists, living happily with his statues come to life."@en ;
