By artist Bartholomeus Spranger (1546-1611), in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna
A visual rendering of Ovid's story of Venus taking the beautiful Adonis as her first mortal lover, Spranger's work is rich with a free form energy as moves the viewer's eye across the canvas from the lifted arms of the goddess to the watchful cherubs. A Flemish Northern Mannerist, Spranger was appointed court painter by the Pope in 1570. 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. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
