Footed Dish with Battle and Lid with Gods

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The interior of this footed dish is filled by a tumultuous cavalry fight, based on an engraving after a composition by the Italian painter Giulio Romano (1499-1546). The exterior displays four sirens, whose bodies terminate in double twisted tails. The exterior of the lid is decorated with a lively frieze of reclining gods that is gracefully accommodated to the circular form. Three of the gods are adapted from a famous engraving after Raphael.
