Flora and Zephyr

Jacopo Amigoni Italian

Not on view

The composition celebrates the end of winter through the union of Flora, Roman goddess of spring, and Zephyr, god of wind. Despite a preponderance of view paintings, Venetian artists specializing in figures—including Amigoni, Sebastiano Ricci, and Giovanni Pellegrini—also achieved international repute and received commissions throughout Europe. Amigoni painted this work in England, where he lived between 1729 and 1739.
