Georg CorneliusPair of antique allegorical oil paintings showing the senses Sound and Taste
Late 19th Century
Late 19th Century
These exquisite antique oil paintings by the important 19th Century German artist Georg Cornelius depict two of the five senses: Sound and Taste. In doing so the artist is consciously recalling a Classical tradition of personifying the Five Senses. Sound is presented as a female figure holding a tambourine in her left hand, while Taste is presented as a male figure holding a glass of wine in his right hand and a sceptre in his left. Both Sound and Taste are shown wearing draped robes and with a cherub by their side, shown playing the bagpipes and holding a jug and flowers respectively. There are further garlands of flowers surrounding the figures in both paintings. There is a signature reading 'G. Cornicelius' and both paintings are set within exquisite carved giltwood frames. Frames height 155cm, width 120cm Paintings height 130cm, width 94cm
