The Allegory of Love is a series of four paintings by Paolo Veronese, produced around 1570 as ceiling paintings. Some experts have established that they were commissioned by Rudolph II, Holy Roman Emperor (1552–1612) for Prague Castle.[1] They are now part of the collection of the National Gallery in London.
