Villa Madoma

This is the oil sketch for the artist Anton Raphael Mengs, in preparing to paint the ceiling of a church in Rome. The Glory Of Saint Eusabius dates to circa 1757.


Here we have a glimpse of the next gallery space. My favourite sculpture in the building is at the far end.


I moved into a side corridor. The Dead Christ On The Cross is an oil painting dating to 1655-60, by Philippe de Champaigne.


Here we have a porcelain sculpture, made under the direction of Louis-Simon Boizot. Marie Antoinette As Minerva was cast by 1780.


Rome From The Villa Madama is the title of this circa 1765 oil painting by Richard Wilson.


Finishing for today, here we have Garden Of An Italian Villa by Hubert Robert, done in 1764.

  1. The Italian Villa trees are interesting, the way they are forced to lean over to create a tunnel.

  28. Time nicely spent looking at art and sharing with us. Thanks, also for the heads up on the spam post, I try and check daily and immediately mark as spam and then delete as just deleting doesn’t obliterate completely and that’s what needs to be done to these complete waste of timers.
