About

An original gouache on paper in the manner of Scottish artist Sir Joseph Noel Paton (1821-1901) titled "Ceres with an Angel", c. 1880. This painting is unsigned. Beautifully framed in moulding from Spain and matting from Holland. Framed size: 22.75" x 19.25. Image size: 12.75" x 9". In excellent condition. In ancient Roman religion, Ceres was a goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships. She was originally the central deity in Rome's so-called plebeian or Aventine Triad, then was paired with her daughter Proserpina in what Romans described as "the Greek rites of Ceres". Her seven-day April festival of Cerealia included the popular Ludi Ceriales (Ceres' games). She was also honoured in the May lustratio of the fields at the Ambarvalia festival, at harvest-time, and during Roman marriages and funeral rites. Ceres is the only one of Rome's many agricultural deities to be listed among the Dii Consentes, Rome's equivalent to the Twelve Olympians of Greek mythology. The Romans saw her as the counterpart of the Greek goddess Demeter, whose mythology was reinterpreted for Ceres in Roman art and literature. The Scottish artist, Sir Joseph Noel Paton, (13 December 1821 – 26 December 1901 Edinburgh), was born in Wooer's Alley, Dunfermline, Fife, to Joseph Neil Paton and Catherine MacDiarmid, damask designers and weavers in the town. He continued the family trade for a short time. He had strong artistic inclinations however and studied briefly at the Royal Academy, London in 1843. He is the brother of Amelia Robertson Hill and Walter Hugh Paton. He also had one brother, Archibald, and two sisters, Catherine and Alexia, who all died in childhood. Sir Joseph erected a monument on the grave of his parents and dead siblings in later life, the grave was probably originally unmarked. It lies on the north side of Dunfermline Abbey and is a distinctive red granite Celtic cross amongst other smaller sandstone. He painted in the Pre-Raphaelite style and became a painter of historical, fairy, allegorical and religious subjects.
