ABOUT THIS PIECE Alessandro Allori's The Abduction of Proserpine was created in 1570 and is in J. Paul Getty Museum Los Angeles. The size of the work is 228,6 x 348 cm and is made of oil on panel. Pluto, god of the Underworld, seizes Proserpine, daughter of Roman goddess of agriculture and fertility, Ceres, and prepares to return with her to his kingdom on a chariot drawn by black horses. According to Ovid's Metamorphoses, Proserpine was forced to live in the underworld for four months of every year; her departure from earth marked the advent of winter, and her return brought about spring and summer. The muscular, marble-like figures illustrate the influence of Michelangelo (1475–1564) on the younger Florentine artist, while their complex, twisted poses and bright, saturated colors reflect that of his adoptive father and master, Bronzino (1503–1572). The Artist: Alessandro Allori (1535 - 1607) was an Italian painter of the late Mannerist Florentine school. In 1540, after the death of his father, Allori was brought up and trained in art by a close friend, often referred to as his 'uncle', the mannerist painter Agnolo Bronzino.
