arcadia name?

I know that the name for the band Arcadia was inspired by a piece of artwork. Can you give us a little insight into how this painting inspired the name "Arcadia" ? Who was the artist? What is the painting called? Thanks! ~Mara~

ACCORDING TO NICK, THE NAME WAS ACTUALLY TAKEN FROM AN INSCRIPTION ON A TOMBSTONE, WHICH READ: "ET IN ARCADIA EGO." HOWEVER THE TOMBSTONE IN FRANCE IS FEATURED IN A PAINTING BY POUSSIN.
