ABOUT THIS PIECE Mannerist Painter Hans von Aachen's Venus and Adonis with Hounds was made in 1615 and the original painting is in Private Collection. The original size of the work is 66 x 104 cm and is made of oil on panel. Venus and Adonis depicts the ancient Roman goddess of love lounging outdoors with the object of her affection. Accompanied here by Cupid, Venus warns Adonis of the dangers of hunting, an admonition he ignores. The hunting dogs held by Adonis foreshadow his death by a wild boar attack. Painted while von Aachen was in Italy, the figures and landscape show the influence that northern Italian painting had on the German artist, particularly the vivid coloristic effects of Venetian art and the elongated body types made famous by the artist Parmigianino. The Artist: Hans von Aachen (1552 - 1615) was a German painter who was one of the leading representatives of Northern Mannerism. Hans von Aachen was a versatile and productive artist who worked in many genres. He was successful as a painter of princely and aristocratic portraits, and further painted religious, mythological and allegorical subjects.
