Description The attribution to the Venetian painter Giulio Carpioni (1613-1678), was changed by Buchanan in 1970 to late 17th-early 18th century Venetian. However, both this small scene as well as no.185, Cupids at play, are reminiscent of the chubby cupids and infant fauns in Carpioni's Bacchanals, both in paintings and etchings. Carpioni was attracted to Titian's early works and must have been familiar with Titian's Worship of Venus. He was also influenced by Poussin's Bacchic scenes, and Pietro Testa's prints, such as the Garden of Venus from 1631-32, a feast of frolicking cherubs. From 1638 Carpioni resides in Vicenza and executed canvases with religious and mythological themes. Most popular though were his small Bacchanals. An attribution to Carpioni or circle of Carpioni seems plausible.
