Painting by Paolo Veronese “Contempt”. The size of the painting is 187 x 188 cm, canvas, oil. The second picture of the four allegories of love symbolizes contempt. Love deity Cupid in a rage. The woman’s love is rejected.
Irresponsible behavior of a man can not cause the opposite sex to either love or respect. This is indicated by a look of contempt and the eloquent pose of one of the women standing by the tree.
Veronese in artistic language was able to express not only the action, but also the psychological picture of what is happening.
