NASCITA DI VENERE

nascita di venere

Contrary to what is inherent in the title, the painting doesn't represent the birth of Venus but her land on the Island of Cyprus. Venus is depicted as a young lady advancing light on a shell on the rippled waves sea. She is pushed on by the breath of Zephyrus depicted on the left while hugging a girl character (maybe a nymph o maybe the wind Aura or Bora). On the shore is Spring wearing an elegant flowered dress. She's handing a shawl to Venus to protect her.
