Description

The work of the Royal Palace, from the Bourbon collection, depicts sleeping Venus with a Amorino at her side, also sleeping, while a satyr gazes at her through a mirror, a symbol of vanity and lust, which are also found, on the first floor, among the flowers, the globe with around the snake, the bow and the quiver.

As part of the Jordanian production, the work is placed during the sixties of the seventeenth century, when the reference of the master to the Venetian painting of Titian origin is more evident, in the chromatism and fluidity of the pictorial material and in the composition itself.

Of the painting, in the Royal Palace until 1832 and then from 1979, there is a very similar version, although smaller in size, in a private collection and a variant of the theme kept at the Capodimonte Museum.
