Fortuna, the ancient Roman Goddess of good fortune and lucky happenstance, is painted cradling the horn of plenty and balancing atop the ball-shaped globe of life's uncertainty. With her angel wings, gossamer fairy gown and flower crown, this beautiful creature of mythology is sometimes also referred to as Felicitas, giver of abundance, and featured on coins of the Empire. French painter Bernard studied both at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and in the studio of Hippolyte Flandrin, and then went on to win the prize of Rome. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.
