Venus and Adonis

Cambiaso Luca

(Moneglia 1527 - El Escorial 1585)

Text not translated yet
"Il quadro di due Amanti con Cupido in aria" di Cambiaso è ricordato in collezione già alla metà del Seicento. La composizione raffigura un tema mitologico di forte carica erotica, prediletto dal pittore ligure ed eseguito verosimilmente negli anni che vanno dal 1565 al 1568. L’opera riscosse immediato successo, a giudicare dalle numerose copie di bottega e dalle tante varianti grafiche e pittoriche rimaste.
