The Triumph of Diana (Winter)

Albani Francesco
(Bologna 1578 - 1660)


The last in the series of The Stories of Venus, the painting was acquired by Cardinal Scipione Borghese in 1622. The putti are already asleep in this work; Diana’s nymphs have managed to disarm them and are getting ready to remove the shield – the target of their games – from the tree. Having defeated the trivial beauty of Venus. chaste Diana dominates the scene from above
