Allegory of Touch

1775. Oil on canvas Not on display

This canvas, a companion piece to the Allegory of Smell, offers an elegant, tender, delicate treatment of a recurring theme in Western art. Both paintings belong to a transition period during which the warm, decorative spirit of late Rococo was giving way to the cold severity of early Neoclassicism.
