This is one of my favourite paintings. First of all because I am a romantic person, secondly because there is so much symbolism in it.
Central and somewhat isolated from the other figures stands a red-draped woman in blue. This is Venus. The trees behind her form a broken arch.
|Zephyrus and Chloris|
Chloris transforms into Flora
