Josef SVANLUND (1887-1927) Oil of Aphrodite 1914

Description: Josef SVANLUND (Swedish 1887-1927) Oil on Canvas depicting the Goddess Aphrodite and Eros; Signed lower left 'Josef Svanlund Rome MCMXIV' and labeled on reverse In a Gilded Frame. This work of the Goddess Aphrodite is charachteristic of the idealised art nouveau style Svanlund like to incorporate along with religious and ancient greek and roman themes. Other paintings by him include: The Death of Caesar, Apollo, Plato, and Christ in the Empire of Death, as well as architectural examples of the Pantheon’s Portals and Borgia’s House in Rome. From 1905-1910 Josef Svanlund was a student at the Academy of Arts in Stockholm. He worked as an assistant to the Swedish artist Olle Hjortzberg, and starting as early as 1910 he travelled abroad extensively, especially concentrating his time in Germany and Italy. Some of Svanlund’s inspiration can be found in the literary symbolism popular in Europe in the 1890's. Josef Svanlund is represented in the National Museum of Sweden in Stockholm, Prince Eugen’s Waldermarsudde and the Academy of Arts in Stockholm. This scene depicts the scene where Aphrodite (Goddess of Love) disarms her son Eros.
