Poussin, Ferrari, Cortone et l'"Aetas Florea"
Most authors now agree that Poussin painted in the second half of the 1620s, or at the latest towards the end of 1630, his two paintings depicting the metamorphoses of flowers in the kingdom of the goddess Flora. No one disputes that the Dresden canvas is the famous "giardino di Fiori" which the artist declared having painted recently for Fabrizio Valguarnera when he testified, on July 28, 1630, at the trial of the Sicilian trickster gentleman.
