A spectacular nude portrait of Vulcan, the Greek God of Fire, Volcanoes and Forges, in his metal workshop, muscular and very handsome! forging a tool or weapon, against a background of flames.

(Shadows not in the piece)

The piece is from the 18th Century, circa 1740-80, and is European, possibly Hungarian. It is an engraving on a fairly thin paper, and was probably part of a series depicting the Greek Mythology.

The portrait is superb, and the scene has incredible power. The God is shown with a blacksmith hammer, in a momentous gesture.

A very elegant print, rare and sophisticated.

CONDITION: In very good condition. No damage.
