The Garden of Love is a painting by Rubens, produced in around 1633 and now in the Prado in Madrid. It was produced shortly after his second marriage to Helena Fourment, who seems to have modelled for the women in the painting. It is the apotheosis of the outdoor courtly Merry Company genre painting.
