Work

Cupid unveils Venus her naked back in front of the spectator, a dog is sleeping in the left corner. The work is monogrammed  by Thomas Willeboirts Bosschaert in the stone ledge behind the red curtain.
Bosschaert was a Dutch-born painter, active in Antwerp until the middle of 17th Century. He often collaborated with other painters as Jan Fyt, Daniël Seghers, Paul De Vos, Adriaen Van Utrecht and even Rubens, tough he was more influenced by Van Dyck.
Nevertheless, Bosschaert developed his own style and touch. Hence the eventual result, an original and sensual composition.
A sleeping dog symbolises sleeping loyalty.
