Description
Attributed to Michelangelo Maestri (Italian, d. 1812), four (4) watercolor and gouache on paper paintings after Giulio Romano (Italian, c._1499-1546), depicting cherubs driving chariots, pulled by various creatures. Each painting has handpainted borders and hand titling in lower center margin: AMOR LASCIVO, AMOR FINTO, AMOR MAGNANIMO, and AMOR CRVDELE. All identically housed under glass with dark blue mats in bronze tone wood frames. Sight - 16" H x 20 1/2" W. Framed - 25" H x 30" W. Note: Michelangelo Maestri was known for his paintings based on antique frescoes discovered in Pompeii and Herculaneum attributed to Giulio Romano (a student of Raphael). These particular paintings depict the different varieties of love and were likely inspired by ceiling frescoes at the Villa Lante on the Janiculum Hill in Rome. Many were sold to wealthy travelers during their Grand Tours of Europe. Provenance: the estate of Dr. Howard T. DeHaven, Columbia, TN.
Condition
Small losses and overpaint to creases to margins, up to 1/2". A few scattered surface scratches. Some mats have some scattered dark spotting. Not examined out of frames.
