Amor Vincit Omnia, Oil on panel, Follower School of Fontainebleau


Oil painting on panel depicting a winged cupid riding a lion and gazing at Venus sitting at the right. Cupid having subdued the lion symbolises the triumph of love: Amor Vincit Omnia. The naked Venus is sitting on an ancient relief fragment and appears to advise or discipline cupid. Venus wears her hair in the classical Greek style adorned by jewellery in the shape of a snail. Her elongated proportions with long limbs, high-set breasts and the stylised pose point to models of the school of Fontainebleau i.e. the work of Francesco Primatticios (1504-1570), Ambroise Dubois (1542/43-1614/15), Toussaint Dubreuils (1558/61-1602) or Niccolo dell'Abbates (1509?-1571?). However, the delicate brushwork and the pastel-colored shades imply a later period, probably late 18th-early 19th century. Oil on panel in a giltwood and composition Renaissance style frame. Measures: Panel 23.4 inches high x 19.1 inches wide Frame: 37.2 inches high x 30.7 wide.
