Venus and Cupid at sea
(Moneglia 1527 - El Escorial 1585)
Present in the Collection in 1693 attributed to Pomarancio, in the 1790 inventory the painting was assigned to the Ligurian Luca Cambiaso. The work shows the Venetian influence typical of the artist’s production in the 1560s. The shaping of the nude Venus brings to mind Veronese, while the broad range of chromatic similarities is highlighted by a palette with low and hazy tones.
