爱神维纳斯和她的情人阿多尼斯相遇了,他们的眼睛还半缠在一起。年轻的凡人阿多尼斯手持长矛,笔直地坐着,急切地想去打猎,而他的狗则耐心地在他身边等待。维纳斯摸着他的肩膀,恳求他不要去。这样做,她稍微向后倾斜,好像要拉近他。在她左边有一对鸽子,维纳斯的属性,象征着爱和恒心。像这样的画作在巴黎受到老练艺术赞助人的欢迎,1627年,西蒙·沃特在罗马呆了几年后回到巴黎。他吸取了意大利巴洛克绘画的经验教训,继续使用明亮的装饰色;阿多尼斯在紫红色的束腰外衣和薰衣草凉鞋上穿着一件黄金长袍,维纳斯部分穿着白色内衣和柔和的紫蓝色长袍。她乳白色的皮肤与阿多尼斯深色光滑的皮肤形成鲜明对比,这里描绘的是一个脸颊红润、嘴巴像花蕾的青少年。

Venus, the goddess of love, and her lover Adonis meet each other's eyes, their bodies still half entwined. Holding his spear, the young mortal Adonis sits upright, anxious to be off to the hunt while his dog waits patiently at his side. Venus touches his shoulder, imploring him not to go. In so doing, she reclines slightly backwards as if to pull him closer. To her left a pair of doves, Venus's attribute, symbolize love and constancy. Paintings like this one were popular with sophisticated art patrons in Paris, where Simon Vouet returned in 1627 after spending years in Rome. He absorbed the lessons of Italian Baroque painting and continued to use bright, decorative colors; Adonis wears a yellow-gold robe over a fuchsia-colored tunic and lavender sandals, and Venus is partially clad in a white undergarment and a subdued violet-blue robe. Her creamy white skin contrasts with the darker, smooth skin of Adonis, here depicted as an adolescent with rosy cheeks and a bud-like mouth.
