The first person Venus sees is the handsome and young Adonis, whom she immediately falls in love with.He is a hunter, and she decides that, to be with him, she would take the form of the goddess of the hunt, Artemis. She warns Adonis of the danger of hunting the boar, but he does not listen to the warning, and he is mortally wounded by the boar. »Francesco Albani dit l'Albane (born August 17, 1578 in Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, and died in the same city on October 4, 1660) is a 17th century Baroque Italian painter, who was nicknamed the“ Painter of the Graces ” or even “the Anacreon of painting”.
