[Venus endormée.]
[Venus endormée.]
Albano p: Piloty del.
[Munich: J. Stuntz, c.1830.]
Tinted lithograph with heightening in white. Printed area 310 x 380mm (12¼ x 15")
Venus asleep on a bed with two cupids under an awning, a stream behind. The picture is adapted from Francesco Albani's 'Venus and Adonis', removing Adonis. This print was published in 'Les Oeuvres Lithographiques', a huge series of reproductive plates of paintings, by Johann Nepomuk Strixner (1782 - 1855) and Ferdinand Piloty (1786-1844). Their work did much to popularise lithography, as they showed the technique could achieve all the same effects as other engraving techniques.
