Vulcan Presenting Venus with Arms for Aeneas (French: Les Forges de Vulcain) is an oil-on-canvas painting by François Boucher, executed in 1757 and now in the Louvre in Paris.[1][2] He produced it as the basis for one of a set of tapestries on The Loves of the Gods.[2] It depicts the homely but muscular Vulcan on the ground in the right, offering up to the more celestial Venus the weapons he has forged for her son Aeneas.
