A free copy of p. P. Rubens "the Statue of Ceres"
Artist Dmitry Buyanov
Acrylic on canvas. Size: 23 cm. X 15 cm. Work completed: 14.09.2015 G.
In this case, the motive of the picture was a Hellenistic statue of Ceres, goddess of vegetation and fertility, which the painter saw in the Borghese collection in Rome. Making the Central image of the painting specific historical monument, Rubens finds a living model, which served as the prototype, slightly changes the shape and position of the marble goddess, filling the static form with movement. In this respect, he goes even further in depicting small figures of playful putti in the foreground of the picture. Rebounding from the images of the boys in the Hellenistic decorative fountain sculpture, it shows a real child's body with all its unique and individual features.
