The painting is part of the episodes drawn from mythology, rich in complex allegorical meanings, whose intention was to celebrate the arts in general.
The subject of the painting is Vulcan, the god of fire, determined to forge pieces of iron.
Seated in the foreground are three putti intent on modeling a helmet.
In addition to representing ingenuity and technique, the three putti symbolize the three main arts, Painting, Sculpture and Architecture.
The painting thus symbolizes the union between creative ability and manual skill, indissoluble components of all the arts and a theme particularly dear to late 18th century France.
