Jupiter and Juno

Carracci Antonio
(Venice 1589 - Rome 1618)


The panel depicts Jupiter and his bride Juno, the quintessential iconographic motif used to exalt the magnificence and bloom of female beauty.
With its evident references to the mythological culture of Annibale Carracci (Bologna 1560 – Rome 1609), the painting can be placed among the artwork with profane iconography that developed in Rome after the decoration of the Galleria Farnese. Recent studies attribute the small panel to Antonio Carracci, the nephew of Annibale and the illegitimate son of Agostino.
C1609), può essere ricondotto nell’ambito della pittura mitologica e profana che si sviluppa a Roma dopo la decorazione della Galleria Farnese. Gli ultimi studi riferiscono la piccola tavola ad Antonio Carracci, nipote di Annibale e figlio illegittimo di Agostino.
