18th Century Gilt and White Gesso Table with Painted Top Depicting Venus
A late Adam period work table depicting Venus and Neptune The slender gilt and white gesso decorated legs supporting a lockable oval tilt-top fitted with a mahogany-lined compartmentalised interior. The glazed top displaying a gouache of the Roman gods, Venus and Neptune, seated in a scallop shell chariot amidst the waves after the original by Francesco Albani (1578-1660). A published engraving of similar composition, dated 1796, suggests a revived interest in this subject-and Classical mythology as a whole-at the end of the 18th century, circa 1790.
