Vertumnus and Pomona , Oil on Canvas Attributed to F.A. Verdier

About

Oil on canvas representing Vertumnus and Pomona ,goddess of fruits. Pomona is a nymph of great beauty who watches over the fruits and gardens. Vertumnus, god of orchards and wine, watches over the transformations of nature over the seasons. He succeeded in seducing Pomona by taking on various appearances, even that of an old woman. The latter shows him as an old woman approaching her very close, the starting point of a speech on love that Pomona listens to without mistrust ( Ovid ,Metamorphoses XIV,622-771). Attributed to François-Alexandre VERDIER; 1651-1730. Verdier was one of the three main students of Le Brun, thanks to whom he was received at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in 1678. From 1688 onwards, the King ordered paintings for the Grand Trianon. Prix de Rome for his drawings in 1668 and 1671. Very good condition. Original canvas . Later period frame. 90 x 79 cm
