Among the many successors of the series I modi, the earliest was the Loves of the Gods, for which Rosso Fiorentino was first entrusted to supply drawings. Only two were completed when he fell out with the publisher Baviera, who then commissioned Perino del Vaga with the continuation of the work. The print represents the fulfilment of the love of Vertumnus, god of seasons, towards Pomona, goddess of fruitful abundance.
