Together with Vertumnus and Pomona, Richard Westall’s Flora Unveiled by Zephyrs was sold by Christie’s for £43,250 in December 2008. There is no other known painting of this title, and this is not really a valid mythological motif. Zephyr is the god of the west wind, not to be represented by multiple putti or erotes. There is indeed a myth of Zephyr and Flora (Chloris), but it would look more like this.
