Pair of Italian 19th Century Gouaches, in the Manner of Maestri

About

A wonderfully decorative and colorful pair of Italian 19th century gouaches, in the manner of Michelangelo Maestri. The pair are of playful satyrs and winged cherubs. The Satyrs are attempting to ride a donkey that is just waking up, while the other has a mischievous winged cherub in a chariot being pulled by two goats. The pair are framed within handsome cherry and ebony frames with a mottled inner edge. Michelangelo Maestri, was a renowned Italian artist of the 18th century who died in Rome in 1812. His finest compositions are based on motifs from antique frescos discovered in Pompeii and Herculaneum and from designs by Raphael or his pupil Giulio Romano. His work became very popular and often purchased by European travelers during their Grand Tour. Some of his most famous gouaches portray putti leading animals on a chariot and were inspired by ceiling frescoes in the Salone of Villa Lante, on the Janiculum Hill in Rome.
