Description

A painting with this subject by Jan Brueghel de Velor and Pieter Paulus Rubens was offered by Jan Brueghel the Younger to the art dealer Cristo Immerseel in 1631 without success. Jan II himself made two copies and the present could be one of them. Probably purchased by Vittorio Amedeo I and arrived in Turin by 1635, the work is characterized by a great iconographic richness: in an interior open on the back with a three-arched loggia, the various elements that recall the concept of vanitas as jewels are added. , books, musical instruments, board games. In the foreground, a cupid holds an image of Christ almost as a warning with respect to the transience of earthly things, while just behind a female figure, not identifiable with certainty but interpreted as Psyche or as an Allegory of Painting, with another putto who is making soap bubbles, raise a lit torch. And the clock relentlessly marks the time that passes.
