Allegory of Spring

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This plaque, along with its companion Allegory or Summer (44.173) were surely intended as part of a series of four plaques of The Four Seasons, a popular subject in the 1600a. A seated satyr plays a pipe, leaning against a pilaster, while a nymph reclining beside him listens. A baby faun, wielding a stick, is herding a goat. In the background are trees and bushes. In the foreground at the right is an urn.
Provenance Jacques Seligmann, New York [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1908, by purchase [Emile Rey as agent]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
