About

Important antique Renaissance style fireplace made ouf of carved walnut. The hood is adorned with a large 17th century oil on canvas depicting a Renaissance ball scene after the Italian-Swiss painter Giovanni Andrea Casella (see inscriptions found on the back). Casella was born in Lugano, Switzerland, in 1619. He is active in the Italian Piedmont where he is a student of Pietro Da Cortona. He is famous from 1642 and realizes masterpieces for the Castello di Rivoli, the Royal Palace of Turin and the Duomo of Turin (Cathedral of the city). For the Duomo, he performed the painting of Saint-Côme and Saint-Damien on the sixth altar. He is also very active in Switzerland, his native country, where he works with his nephew Giacomo. Both painted in 1662 the two lateral frescoes of the choir of the Church of St. Roch in Lugano. This chimney is composed of old carved walnut elements dating from the 17th century, which were reassembled during the 19th century. The jambs are decorated with carved terms, sculpted as young men with long hair. The lintel is carved with a frieze decorated with interlaced foliage, putti and eagles with spread wings. In the center, a pilgrim is inscribed in a medallion supported by two angels. This fireplace is sold without any fireplace insert nor floor.
