In turn, these works became models for numerous replicas.Titian painted the first Venus and Adonis, which was lost but is known from the copies that were made of it, at the end of t

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, 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

The Suidas connected this drawing with Cambiaso´s Venus and Adonis in the Galleria Borghese. Another studio version of the same composition, corresponding closely in outline to the Prado drawing but differing from it through the addition of shading in brush and wash, is in the Fondazione Horne, the Uffizi, Florence (inv. no. 5580).This and nos. D01716, D01722, D01890 and D01899 from the Album were

The drawing has been detached from the Album page and the old numbering lost. Cupid is here represented as older than on the other composition of the subject from the Album group. That he is indeed Cupid is suggested by what appears to be a quiver of arrows in his right hand.

This is a variant of the composition of a painting from Cambiaso´s late period, now untraced, formerly in the collection of the Duc d´Orleans, the appearance of which survives in an engraving by G. M. Villain. In both the lost painting and the Prado copy, the legs of the dead Adonis, with sandals laced half way up his shins, are intertwined with those of the grief-stricken Venus. The motif of the

Adonis is depicted lying on the ground, dead. Meanwhile, Venus appears in profile facing left and bowing over him. Landscape background.Although the drawing’s evidently mythological subject might not be clear, its style leaves no doubt on the attribution of the work to Cajés.

Dibujo en el que se representa a Venus sentada a la derecha con Cupido; ante ella, arrodillado, Adonis. Lleva una inscripción con el nombre de Mola y una fecha en 1676, por lo que no se puede referir a Pier Francesco Mola, muerto en 1666, sino tal vez a su hijo (Texto extractado de Mena Marqués, M.: Catálogo de dibujos. VI. Dibujos italianos del siglo XVII, Museo del Prado, 1983, p. 201).
