Classical Capital, Modeled Alabaster, 20th Century

About

Classical style capital. Modeled alabaster (resins and silica gel composition). 20th century. Architectural capital composed of a series of smooth moldings above and below, and rows of acanthus leaves carved under scrolls decorated with plant elements; these scrolls located in the corners frame a band of pearls and ovals located next to another one that remembers a strip of eggs, and a plant element located in the center of the front that rises above (or under) the mentioned smooth moldings. Although the resemblance between the piece and drawings, engravings and other elements and works of classical compound order is clear, it is also possible to appreciate a series of differences between the present piece and the models of Roman Antiquity, works of the Italian Renaissance (compare, for example with the capitals of the Palace Capitaniato of Vicenza, of Andrea Palladio), etc." Size: 52 x 23 x 35 cms.
