Hans Baldung Grien

Cupid with the Flaming Arrow, um 1530

About the object

The painting is a remnant of a (life) study, presumably mythological - perhaps Venus, the Goddess of Love. Only a section of her head is visible. The entire painting was probably c. 2 m tall. Several comparable erotic works from Baldung's second Strasbourg period have survived.
