Genius of Salvator Rosa: a youth crowned with ivy hands a heart to a woman seated next to him, his left hand rests on a cornucopia spilling coins and jewels onto the ground, at right a woman holds a cap over the youth's head, at left a kneeling woman grasps the top of a painting, a man in a toga gestures toward a book and a balance, a satyr makes a pointing gesture, cypress trees and a sarcophagus beyond
