Probably Pieter Fransz Isaacsz (Helsingør, 1568-1625); The classic authors Homer and Ovid tell the story of Venus who regularly cheated on her husband Vulcan. She had fallen in love with the god Mars.
The adulterous couple loves each other under the watchful eye of Amor who squeaks under the curtain. He symbolizes the love that unites them. Venus clearly meets the 17th-century ideal of beauty for women. Her very pale skin is a sign of high social status. (Because women of good families did not have to work long hours in the fields, the sun had no chance to give them a tan.) The small painting comes across as very intimate because of its small size and the loving embrace of the two gods. The erotic scene was probably intended for private use and was presumably hidden from the direct gaze of house guests. Such erotic images with mythological subjects were loved by high-ranking gentlemen and rulers at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th century. For example, the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II in Prague, had several similar paintings made by Bartholomeus Spranger (Antwerp, 1546 – Prague, 1611). Pieter Fransz Isaacsz, the painter of this piece, was an apprentice in the studio of Hans von Aachen (Cologne, 1552 – Prague, 1616), a painter who later in his life also worked on behalf of Rudolph II. Isaacsz probably resided in Prague himself around 1600. The panel is executed in the so called “mannerist style”, a somewhat artificial, elegant style. A style far removed from any naturalism.
