Until then, she and her attendants festoon the seemingly innocent beast with flowers, while her blue drapery flutters in the breeze. In the upper right corner, a hazy poetic light illuminates her home city of Tyre, further evoking an idyllic antique world
The hunting scene is one of the paintings Cranach executed to document the important "sports" events of the aristocracy, for instance tournaments or, as here, hunting. The idea was to document the occasion as a memorable historical event
The traditional game piece of seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting is a highly colored, elaborately detailed, and often gory trophy of the hunt, where mounds of slaughter, slippery with blood and viscera, spill from laden tabletops.
