"Allegory of Love"

Domain of Domenico Piola (Genoa 1627-1703)
Oil painting on canvas
Canvas size 75 x 60 frame 90 x 75
This delightful love scene depicts a putto's courtship towards his mischievous and complacent companion.
The boy turns his gaze towards her and offers her a floral tribute with his right hand raised.
She, already surrounded by a rich garland of flowers on her hips and a crown on her head, looks at him with a naive and intriguing air.
The painting is particularly attractive and offers a pleasant view to the viewer, inevitably involved in the message of love transmitted by the two innocent creatures.
The splendid colors of the tunics, he in bright blue and she in soft pink, contrast with the naked bodies created with an extraordinary volumetric effect thanks to a perfect application of the shades.
The Genoese school of the seventeenth century, which saw Piola as a leading exponent, was considered unsurpassable in the depictions of cherubs, little angels and cherubs. The churches and palaces of the Ligurian territory abound in paintings and frescoes with these subjects.
In fact, the work is certainly an excellent interpretation of the Genoese Baroque, which rarely detaches itself from religious subjects to offer us these tasty scenes with frivolous and covertly libertine outlines.
