A Girl Protecting Herself versus Eros (Released Title)

A Girl Safeguarding Herself versus Eros (Released Title)

Item Summary

A young naked female rests with her arms outstretched, pressing away a winged young boy. He is Cupid, the god of love, standing up an arrowhead to puncture her. The title recommends that the girl is attempting to protect herself, yet she grins as well as battles unconvincingly versus the troublesome little god.Visitors to the Paris events of the 1870s as well as 1880s enjoyed William-Adolphe Bouguereau"s paints. The Gallery"s repainting repeats a bigger structure that Bouguereau created the Paris Hair salon in 1880; a visitor most likely saw the bigger variation there and also asked for a smaller sized one for exclusive viewing.Bouguereau put his mythical dream in an ideal, Arcadian landscape. As a matter of fact, he made this make-up in his workshop, replicating the landscape from the bordering French countryside as well as utilizing among his preferred models.Provenance Provenance
