Father Time Overcome By Hope, Love, And Beauty
Famous renaissance art
The symbolism of Father Time is a challenging one to trace in European fine art history. It mainly arises from the perception of the Grim Reaper with his harvesting scythe, and images of the Roman Titan Saturn, who also carried a scythe. You can see one cracked beneath Father Time in Vouet's painting above, while his hourglass is laying on his side, with time frozen or stopped by Hope, Love, and Beauty.
The painting depicts 3 beings from left to right attacking Father Time. Left to right, we have Hope, (Roman goddess Spes) crowned with a wreath of flowers; Love, represented by winged Cupids or putti attacking Father Time's wings; and Love (Roman goddess Venus) nude and wearing her signature pearls in her hair. Typically time defeats love and beauty, and arguably even hope. At the dawn of a New Year, time is defeated and their positions reversed.
The perfect accent for any space! Each wood print is unique due to the natural qualities of each individual panel of wood.
