Logic between Vice and Virtue, Pietro Liberi (1605-1687).

Oil on canvas, 150cm by 136.5cm.

The artist was sometimes known as ‘il Libertino’ due to his frequent choice of salacious themes in his work and his preference for naked, or scantily clad female subjects.

The purchase of this painting, by the 5th Earl of Exeter in Venice, together with five others by Liberi, is recorded in the Steward’s accounts of 1684.
