Virtue Triumphs (When the Devil Sleeps)
Description

From the Artist:

 The print "Virtue Triumphs (When the Devil Sleeps)" is a loose reinterpretation of one of my least favorite works in art history, "Allegory of Time & Love" by Bronzino (1545). What interested me about the subject matter here was a sort of anti-tittilating effect - the original is syrupy- but my image is more ironic. I wanted the figures to look decadent exhausted and spirit rather than erotic or excited. The devil character in the background is just waking up hence virtue is not triumphing anymore.
