    Oil on canvas
    213.4 cm (84.02 in.) x 127 cm (50 in.)
    Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, United States.

    A beautiful young maiden hangs from her lover's neck, coquettish and devoted, she smiles warmly to meet his protective gaze. The two are seated on a swing, hanging on heavy ropes suspended from large unseen branches in a thick forest bathed with glowing primordial light. Her gown, diaphanous and white, more than slightly reveals her perfect sensual form. His arms hold tightly to the ropes, which supports them. Springtime is arguably the single greatest image of young romantic love ever conceived, poignantly touching the hearts of millions over the last 125 years.

    Pierre August Cot painted Springtime in 1873. Soon thereafter it was exhibited at the Paris Salon where it created a sensation. In the decades that followed it became a virtual icon of 19th Century sensibilities and taste, with fame so widespread that most westerners still recognize the image, if not the artist. Reproduced millions of times, the odyssey of this masterpiece is one of the fascinating and mysterious stories of the art world.
