Venus, the goddess of love, interrupts her music-making to be crowned with a wreath of flowers by Cupid. An admiring, well-dressed youth playing the lute—the quintessential instrument for love madrigals—gazes at her raptly. In the background nymphs and satyrs dance to the music of a shepherd. Titian painted this amatory theme multiple times. This one was left unfinished, except for the landscape background, which is fully painted by Titian. Once believed to allude to contemporary debates concerning "seeing" versus "hearing" as the primary means for perceiving beauty, these pictures seem primarily to celebrate sensual pleasures.

Product materials that you can choose from:

For every product we offer a range of different materials and sizes. Select your preferred size and material between the alternatives:

  • Aluminium dibond print: These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an outstanding depth. For the Aluminium Dibond option, we print the favorite work of art on the surface of the white-primed aluminum material. The colors are bright and luminous, the fine details are clear and crisp, and there’s a matte look you can literally feel. The direct UV print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is an extremely stylish way to display art prints, because it draws focus on the whole artwork.
  • Poster (canvas material): Our poster is a printed cotton canvas with a slight finish on the surface. It is perfectly appropriate for placing the art copy with the help of a customized frame. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin between 2-6cm round about the print motif in order to facilitate the framing.
  • Glossy acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): An print on acrylic glass, often denoted as a plexiglass print, makes your favorite original work of art into stunning home décor and offers a good alternative option to canvas or aluminium dibond fine art prints. The great upside of an acrylic glass fine art copy is that contrasts as well as granular artwork details become more visible because of the granular tonal gradation in the picture.
  • Canvas: A printed canvas material mounted on a wood frame. Further, a canvas creates a familiar and positive feeling. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight. This means, it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any type of wall.
