More about this artwork
A clue as to the meaning of this scene is provided on the piece of paper held by the young patient that, translated, reads: “No medicine can help here as this is lovesickness.” The little figure of Amor and the wall painting at the right depicting the unfortunate lovers Venus and Adonis underscore this message.
