Amphitrite & The Cherubs - Enormous 18th Century Italian Classical Oil Painting

c. 1770's

About

Ampthitrite & The Cherubs Italian School, 18th century oil painting on canvas (laid on wood panel) framed size: 38.5 x 77.5 inches provenance: private collection, England Exceptionally large, fine quality Italian classical oil painting dating to the second half of the 18th century. The makes an immediate power statement on the wall - its sheer scale is breathtaking - completely making an interior. Ideal for a house perhaps overlooking the sea. The painting depicts the goddess of the sea, Amphitrite, depicted in a sea chariot with the head of a dolphin and towed by cherubs. A classical landscape stands around her, lush with waterfalls and abundance; an ancient temple stands on the hill top overlooking the scene. The painting is surrounded by a painted leaf border to the edging, further complimenting the design. In ancient Greek mythology, Amphitrite (/æmfɪˈtraɪtiː/; Greek: Ἀμφιτρίτη) was a sea goddess and wife of Poseidon and the queen of the sea. Under the influence of the Olympian pantheon, she became merely the consort of Poseidon and was further diminished by poets to a symbolic representation of the sea. In Roman mythology, the consort of Neptune, a comparatively minor figure, was Salacia, the goddess of saltwater. It is a monumentally impressive painting - one of the largest we have seen for some time - and beautiful in its composition, subject and brushwork. We imagine that it would have originally hung in a palatial Italian mansion, possibly Venetian with the influence of the sea. Condition report: The painting is in very good and presentable condition, given its years. The canvas has been laid down over more recent wooden board panel; very minor scuffs and surface abrasions caused by age.
