After Garofalo: An Allegory of Love

Charlie Kirkham

Garofalo “Allegory of Love”

The strange caped man in red swooping in, the lizard, the goat and the weirdly headed cupid all make this a great painting to draw from. That’s before we get onto the beautifully painted landscape on the left. This very strange painting follows a popular theme and shows us another Allegory of Love.
