Venus in Love is a painting by Jackie Von Tobel, reproduced as a Fine Art Giclee Print, in her Social Commentary Collection of wall art. In these portraits, she is exploring the hot-button issues of today that are not so different from those in the past.
Using elements from classic paintings, and adding new imagery and dialogue, she sheds light on contemporary life which leads the viewer of the work to draw their own conclusions.
The goddess of love and beauty is brought into contemporary times when she stares into the screen of a digital device rather than a mirror. The lush setting makes this one of Jackie’s powerful historical portraits with a contemporary twist.
