François Boucher⁣⁣ Vulcan Presenting Venus with Arms for Aeneas⁣⁣ 1756⁣⁣ “Vulcan Presenting Venus with Arms for Aeneas” by François Boucher depicts the god of the forge from ancient Roman myth, presenting the Roman goddess of love, with a sword for Aeneas, her son.  It depicts a muscular Vulcan with a blacksmith’s hammer and tools, on the ground in the right, offering up to the more celestial Venus the weapons he has forged for her son, the Trojan hero and the ancestor of Romulus and Remus, who founded ancient Rome. The artist, Boucher, created this theme as the basis for one of a set of tapestries on “The Loves of the Gods”.⁣⁣ Boucher is known for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes and decorative allegories. He was perhaps the most celebrated painter and decorative artist of the 18th century. This painting is typical of the Rococo taste and reflects the Boucher’s powers of imagination. Some of François Boucher works laid the groundwork for the composition of tapestry cartoons. François Boucher was the art director of the Gobelins tapestry manufactory from 1755 to 1770⁣⁣.” #18thcenturyart #paintings #painting #artlovers #artists #famousart #artlegends #art #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #artoftheday #artstagram #artofinstagram #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #artpreciatetheday #francoisboucher #vulcanpresentingvenuswitharms #rococo
