PFF - Angels abound

http://www.all-art.org/baroque/images/albani22.jpgHere is a fancied up version of the cupids in "Adonis led by Cupids to Venus" by Francesco Albani. It is just a detail, so I figured I would try to find the full version. It was harder than you would think, everybody likes the cupids. But here it is, thanks to http://www.all-art.org/. If I want more info on an artist, or a piece of art, I will return!

I like the detail, who could not love a chubby cupid, and this has two.

The cupids sure look different when they are out of context!

Beautiful card, Shaunna! Just like you, I never fail to investigate a little further about a certain postcard when it strikes my curiousity :D

Have a great weekend.
