This painting was part of the original Boymans collection bequeathed to Rotterdam in 1847. It was anonymous at the time, but was later attributed to Titian, which is not all that strange. The superbly rendered rage of the nymph seized by the bronzed faun would be worthy of him. A sort of rebus was later added on the back that speaks of a harsh fate.
This painting comes from the original Boijmans collection that was bequeathed to the city of Rotterdam in 1847. At that time, the work was listed as anonymous. It was later attributed to Titian, which is not such a strange idea. The wonderfully depicted rage of the nymph in the forceful grip of the bronzed faun would be worthy of him. It is therefore probable that the painting was made by an artist in Titian’s circle.
