The Nurture of Jupiter
Nicolas Poussin - 1635-1637
998 x 790 • 146 KB
Formally this painting is closely related to 'The Triumph of Neptune' in its play of diagonals but it differs essentially from it because this work's landscape plays an important role. The cool colour scheme is a sign that Poussin was moving away from the warmth of Titian towards a more classical style.
