About

Claudia and Cybele is an original oil painting on canvas attributed to the Italian artist Giovanni Antonio Grecolini and realized in 1720 ca. The piece is in very good conditions. The painting represents the culminating moment of the "Roman Legend of the Vestal Claudia", when the young woman, accused of breaking her vow of chastity, was able to prove her innocence with a miraculous action. Claudia pulls with a rope the ship with the statue of the goddess Cybele that had run aground at the mouth of the Tiber. This painting is iconographically very interesting and it is it clearly attributable to the paternity of Grecolini, on the basis of irreproachable comparisons with some of his paintings with a similar inventive and interpretative approach that are published in the Repertory of Roman Painting of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (Ref. Allemandi ed., Turin 1994,1, pp. 90-91, II, fìgg. 516-521)
