Description

Description

This timeless ring was inspired by a bracelet worn by Venus, the goddess of love, in the acclaimed painting Venus in Front of the Mirror (ca. 1613/14) by Peter Paul Rubens (Flemish, 15771640). Rubens portrays the nude, voluptuous Venuswearing nothing but a bracelet and a pair of pearl teardrop earrings with her back to the viewer. Her son, the boyish god Amor, holds a mirror before her, turned in a direction that allows Venus, through the reflection in the glass, to gaze at the viewer. In this work, Rubens plays with the theme of seeing and being seen, establishing a connection between the subject and the viewer while revealing the goddess's alluring coquetry.

Produced in cooperation with the Princely Collections of Liechtenstein
