Young woman holding wax tablets and a stylus (Sappho), Pompeii, Italy, c. 50 A.D., [Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli]

"ειδεχθεστάτη…μικρά τε και μέλαινα ορώμενη" 
In this way Maximus of Tyre (2nd century A.D) describes Sappho (ca late 7nth-early 6th century B.C); meaning ugly, small and black in sight. His description though mean at the very least, must have been an exclamation of surprise that looks and poetic skill did not go hand in hand. Or he must have been pretty crushed when someone informed him that his fantasies of her (like that picture above) were completely wrong. Or he championed authenticity against such as the above represenations. Who knows.
One thing is of importance; Sappho’s poetry, fragmented as it is, has never failed to captivate our imaginations and convey to us a woman of deep sentiment and powerful intellect.
It’s interesting to note that despite “literary” canon, Sappho has been immortalized in romantic and neoclassical painting with grecian themes, as a “marble-white” “beauty”. Such whitewashing was not at all accidental. This kind of “idealization” had an extremely negative impact to greek populations at the time, because europeans such as the British and the French progressively deemed Greeks as “impure” and “unclean” from contact with other civilizations- Islam and the Ottoman empire, even despite the fact that there were “fair” turkish people- and so “unworthy” to lay claims on their ancient heritage.

"Anyone who wants the great things of this life
Yet does not know he is only travelling the road,
And prides himself on his nobility and boasts of his wealth
-I dismiss him as a nobody, to be thought of as mad,
For these things are flowers which come and go,
They are changed by time, and time often takes them away.
— V. Kornaros, Erotokritos IV 601-6 (Bryans, p. 89)"
