$8,75025% Off


17th century Flemish painting, school of Rubens. Venus Mars and Cupid. Exciting mythological painting of Venus, Mars and Cupid. The composition is extraordinary and captivating. Mars, the God of War, Venus’s lover and father of Cupid is literally disarmed and symbolically defeated by love. This glorious Old Master painting from the Antwerp School is executed in oil on a 17th century hand shaved wood panel. It is in Rubens’s colors with well balanced proportions. It shows a full figured Venus, Mars and Cupid in motion. Rubens’s studio in Antwerp was the biggest in Europe. He employed over 100 painters and apprentices. Because of this, there is a possibility that this composition originated in Rubens’s studio. Provenance: By descent from the estate of a Cuban collector, acquired by a private collector in West Palm Beach, Florida. Condition is good. Some in painting. Wood panel is slightly warped. Later Renaissance style frame. Measurements: W 15.75” x H 18” x D 1.25” Panel only - W 9.75” x H 12.75”.
