Circle of Charles-Joseph Natoire

Venus and Cupid


oil on canvas, a circle

canvas diameter: 26 ¾ in.; 68 cm.

framed diameter: 28 ½ in.; 72.4 cm. 

The painting is on a circular canvas which has an old glue relining. The paint layer has flattened somewhat and the canvas presses though in some areas, though this is not bothersome. The painting is under an even varnish and the colors remain vibrant. Under ultraviolet light there is some evidence of old restoration in some of the skin tone, and areas of frame abrasion on the edges flouresce as well. The painting can be hung as is. Offered in a carved giltwood frame.
