The Classical figure of Venus, the Goddess of Love, and her companions are central characters in the treatment of love in European art and tradition. This passionate topic is explored through the Museum's European art collection – from the 14th century to the present day – with paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and collages. Including works by Francisco de Goya, Auguste Rodin, and Peter Paul Rubens.
