Two Projects for Painted Grotesque Decorations of a Ceiling

Smithsonian Institution,


Horizontal rectangle. The wave band is drawn on both sides, fret bands are indicated as decorations of the central frames. Below, in the center of the rhomboidal panel is an ooblong tablet support by the wings of a half-figure. Rinceaux bars spring with vases from which branches rise, forming a half circular panel. Enclosed are two birds and a hanging gem. Below are two winged tigers. In the scythe of the rhomboidal panel, on the reverse of a candelabrum, there are a half-figure of a winged woman, a lekythos and rinceaux. Two birds are beside it above. Laterally are two winged half-figures, from whose rinceaux spring, with birds atop.
