Original artwork description by The Cleveland Museum of Art (© Copyright - The Cleveland Museum of Art -

Johann Liss studied in Holland and Antwerp, and later (about 1620) traveled to Rome and Venice. This painting of Cupid—also known as Amor, the god of love—reflects the artist’s skillful synthesis of diverse artistic influences to create his own unique style. The painting’s rich colors and fluid brushwork are influenced by past Venetian masters (Titian, Tintoretto, or Veronese), while the deep contrasts of light and shadow reveal a stylistic debt to Caravaggio. The directness of Cupid’s gaze and the concentrated energy of his pose create a strong connection with the viewer.
