Description
The image of the winged God of Love, Eros (known to the Romans as Cupid), carrying gifts, suggests that this was originally part of a bride’s dowry. The lush, baroque painting style is typical of the Greek colonies of Magna Graecia (the pre-Roman name for southern Italy), which were famous for their appreciation of life’s sensual pleasures. Today, it serves as a lovely reminder of the splendor of the Classical Age and of the timeless power of love that flies on swift wings. - (PF.0845)
