 The Worship of Venus
by Titian (1518-20)

THIS FESTIVAL of love features a multitude of cupids, themselves the offspring of the unbridled passion of Venus and her nymphs. The cupids’ mission is to proliferate passionate love. Here, they worship Venus as the goddess of love, who has produced them through her pursuit of love.

This second bacchanal (for the infant cupids) is described by the classical author Philotratus.
