Venus and Cupid

XVI century. Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on paper. Not on display

Cupid, seated in Venu´s lap, raises his face to kiss her. The two figures correspond precisely in pose to those in a painting by Cambiaso of Venus and Cupid accompanied by a satyr in a landscape in the Palazzo Belimbau, Genoa. However, in the painting, the figures are seated on a piece of drapery rather than on clouds.
