PAUL CADMUS Venus and Adonis.

by Swann Auction Galleries

June 4, 2015, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $200,000 - $300,000

Description: PAUL CADMUS Venus and Adonis. Egg tempra and oil on canvas on pressed wood board, 1936. 725x825 mm; 28 1/2x32 1/2 inches. Signed in oil, lower left recto. Cadmus loosely based the composition of this work on the Peter Paul Rubens oil on canvas of the same subject, circa 1635-1640, now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Though Cadmus set the scene in a classical landscape, his Adonis is rushing to play tennis, clutching the racket in his right hand and two ballis in his left, while fending off his clinging Venus and a bawling baby, a microcosm of 1930s suburban life under the guise of a subject from antiquity.
