Original artwork description from The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Lotto, whose unusual genius makes him one of the most fascinating of all Venetian painters, depicts Venus and her son Cupid in a bower, a subject inspired by ancient marriage poems. He probably painted it to celebrate the wedding of a cultivated couple in Venice or Bergamo, and Venus’s features may be taken from the bride’s. The beautifully observed details relate to the goddess and marriage. The ivy is symbolic of fidelity, the bride wore a myrtle wreath, and Cupid peeing is a lighthearted augury of fertility.

For every product we offer a range of different materials and sizes. You can choose among the following product customization options:

  • Canvas: A canvas print is a printed canvas mounted on a wood frame. A canvas print of this artpiece will give you the opportunity to turn your personal into a large size collection piece like you know from galleries. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the help of additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any type of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with an outstanding depth, which creates a contemporary look thanks to a non-reflective surface. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the excellent introduction to fine art reproductions made with aluminum. The bright & white parts of the original artwork shimmer with a silk gloss, however without glow. The colors of the print are luminous, the details are crisp.
  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often named a UV print on plexiglass, will transform the artwork into beautiful wall decoration. Your artwork will be made with the help of state-of-the-art UV print technology. This creates the impression of vibrant, impressive color tones. The great benefit of a plexiglass fine art print is that contrasts and color details become exposed thanks to the very subtle tonal gradation in the picture. Our plexiglass with real glass coating protects your chosen art print against sunlight and external influences for between 40-60 years.
  • The poster print on canvas material: The poster is a UV printed flat cotton canvas paper with a fine surface texture. Please note, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the print to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
