Allegorical Figures Representing Virtue and Abundance

Giovanni Battista Tiepolo Italian

Not on view

Like the other frescoes in this room, this large roundel is from the Palazzo Valle Marchesini Sala in Vicenza. It simulates a sculptural relief and decorated the ceiling of a long gallery, whose lateral walls were embellished with the allegorical figures of the liberal arts. It depicts two figures representing Virtue, on the left, and Abundance, with the cornucopia, on the right.
