One of the last known works by the renowned Venetian Renaissance master, Titian (Tiziano Vecellio, ca. 1490 - 1576). In this large painting, the actions of the prominent figures of Venus, Cupid, and Anteros represent the vagaries of love. There is a mysterious quality to the scene, which Titian himself described as a “poetic vision.”
