Venus and Cupid is a painting by Lorenzo Lotto in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It probably dates to c. 1530, but has been dated from the mid 1520s as late as the 1540s.
In the picture naughty Cupid urinates on his mother through a laurel wreath - an act meant to symbolize fertility.
This painting was originally supposed to be a marriage/wedding gift, inspired by ancient marriage poems.
