The Pleasures of the Seasons: Spring: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Spring is evoked by appropriate flowers and by couples engaging in uninhibited and playful dalliance. Festive musicians accompany the dancing couple at the center, and sculpted putti cavort on a large urn. In the left foreground, lovemaking is more urgent, as a young couple embrace below a sculpture showing Venus crowned by Cupid. Venus, the goddess of love, is traditionally associated with springtime.
