A French oil on canvas painted panel from the early 19th century depicting Venus and Cupid. Created in France during the First Empire period, this oil on canvas painting, mounted on a ¼” wooden board, attracts our attention with its elegant mythological decor depicting Venus seated sideways in a perfect diagonal, looking at an adorable cupid. Surrounded by cornucopias, floral garlands and topped with a large shell (one of Venus' attributes), this French oil on canvas painted panel circa 1810 will enliven any wall beautifully, perhaps hung above a credenza, canapé or console table.
