Rape of Prosperpina

Statue by Vincenzo de Rossi entitled "The Rape of the Proserpina" circa 1570.
Proserpina is trying desperately to escape Pluto’s grasp as he carries her to Hades.
Meanwhile, passers by fail to notice the event !

The master of this subject was Bernini. At all costs view bernini's rendition!

other sizes: small medium original auto
