The Worship of Venus
Oil on canvas. 1518
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian´s first contribution to the Camerino d´Alabastro was prompted by the death in October 1517 of Fra Bartolommeo from whom Alfonso d´Este had commissioned a Worship of Venus one year previously and for which Fra Bartolommeo submitted a sketch. In April 1518, Titian received instructions on the subject matter and format of the work along with a drawing, probably that by Fra Bartolommeo. In Octo

The Andrians
Oil on canvas. 1523 - 1526
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Having delivered the Bacchus and Ariadne in 1523 Titian then painted The Andrians, also inspired by Philostratus (Imagines I, 25). The scene is set on the island of Andros, a place so favoured by Bacchus that a stream flows with wine. Gods, men and children unite in the celebration of the effects of wine, whose consumption, in Philostratus´ words, makes men rich, dominant, generous to their friend

Bassano, Jacopo (Jacopo Dal Ponte)

It was Ballarin who discovered what is probably the Prado´s finest painting by Jacopo, and one of his most impressive late works, hanging in the Sala de Juntas of the Universidad de Barcelona, where it was deposited, having been attributed to a follower of Leandro Bassano. The painting appears to be a monumental refutation of Vasari´s description of Jacopo in the second edition of his Lives (Flore

Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

Like its pair, Cephalus and Procris (Strasbourg Museum, inv. 634, oil on canvas, 162 x 185 cm), this canvas illustrates a passage from the Metamorphoses by the Roman poet Ovid. Both stories involve love cut short by death, in this case that of Adonis. Veronese conveys the grief of Venus, goddess of love, as she presages the death of her lover at the hunt. Painted after a period in Rome, Veronese u

Venus, Adonis and Cupid

Carracci, Annibale

Venus, the Roman goddess of Love and Beauty, is accidentally wounded by one of her son Cupid´s arrows, which triggers her passion for Adonis. This love story ends with the tragic death of the hero. The scene is based on book X of Ovid´s Metamorphoses, one of the most important sources of mythology for artists of that time. The composition and pictorial technique in this work are a fine

Parmigianino. Girolamo Francesco Maria Mazzola (Copy)

As he is painted here, Eros is mischievous. Praxiteles, as far as we know, first represented him in a sculpture, around 370-60 BCE; he showed him nude in his sleep, and another time standing, with a bow in his left hand. Lysippos also represented him standing, preparing his bow. It was the great Euripides, in the fifth century BCE, who first mentioned Eros’s bow in Iphigenia at Aulis: "[Eros] gold

The Elements, the last of the series of four canvases conceived by Jacopo after the Noah cycle and the Seasons, is dated around 1576-1577. There are three known incomplete series produced by the bottega, in which Jacopo´s degree of involvement varies. Of the original series, executed mainly by Francesco, Air (Berlin, Kaiser Friederich Museum) remains; of a later set produced in 1578-1580 and execu

Cornelisz. Van Haarlem, Cornelis

The frieze arrangement of the figures places this work in the painter`s classical phase, which began in 1594, the same year as the date on this painting. In Van Thiel`s view, it could be the picture which the Haarlem City Council acquired from the painter in 1594, and which was presented as a gift to Coenraet Dircksz. de Rechtere in around 1601-08, in gratitude for services rendered between 1574 a

After studying the canvas, the pigments, and the technique of this work as well as those of Diana and Callisto (P424), we can be sure that these paintings are 17th-century Spanish copies. This provides important insight into the Madrid style during Carreño and Rizi’s generation. The originals of these paintings were some of Titian’s masterpieces from his final years. They belonged to the ro

Hunting in the woods, Acteon stops on the banks of a stream when he sees Diana and her nymphs bathing nude on the opposite bank. Fascinated by their beauty, he observes them with a challenging and amused expression, unaware of the cost of his boldness. Indeed, the outcome will be tragic, as Diana, goddess of chastity, is furious at being seen in the nude by a mortal. She responds by transforming t

On a number of occasions, Peter Paul Rubens partially overpainted finished pictures. He did this to paintings by his own hand, such as Nymphs and Satyrs (P1666), which he retouched and enlarged twenty years after he first painted it. He also made changes to drawings and paintings by other artists that he owned. This painting is an example of such reworking, albeit in a radical mode that changed th

Rubens, Peter Paul; Snyders, Frans

Goddess of grains and the harvest, Ceres holds some corn cobs in her right hand while, with the left, she holds a horn of plenty. Two nymphs fill the cornucopia with fruits, symbolizing the Earth´s generosity. The subject is inspired by Ovid´s mythological tales. In this collaboration between two artists, something quite frequent among Flemish painters, Rubens made the figures of the goddess and h
