Description of the subject depicted in the print: What could be more fanciful, more unreal, than the fairy-palace entitled the Forge of Vulcan, by Boucher! A French courtier of the period, seen, (an uncommon circumstance) devoid of his clothing, sits, masquerading as Vulcan, on an indefinite couch-like bank of rocks and clouds combined. Smiling, with his best society manner, he holds aloft a sword, in its scabbard, the whole wound with a sash. Beside him are an anvil, a vise, and several implements of the armourer's craft. Opposite him, on clouds, with a background of sky and general fleeciness of atmosphere, sits Venus, simpering, with Thetis and a couple of attendant Graces. Cupids are dotted about wherever they are demanded by the exigencies of the composition. Two of them hold aloft a gorgeous helmet heavily crested with ostrich plumes. The whole scene is laid in a cave of cloudstuff, and there are no suggestions of such unrefined people as Cyclops about! Doves and wreathes of flowers are thrown in at intervals.
