Oil painting on canvas of mythological subject depicting a nymph with a putto at the fountain, 17th century, Veneto; the work is attributed to the prestigious school of Titian, Venetian artist of the sixteenth century.
The painting shows a nymph and a putto beneath a shell-shaped fountain.
Beautiful rendering of the water that descends and gently bathes the two.
The nymph is wonderful and her attitude is highly feminine, the rendering of the flesh is soft, the erotic charge is high despite not being vulgar.
2 photos were taken from a very close distance to show the craquelure, (marks on the canvas due to age) the work was certainly made by an excellent painter, a true masterpiece. Canvas size 61 x 78 cm, with modern frame, total size: 74 x 92 cm. In very good condition. With expertise, estimated at around 8500 euros.
