Dish (coppa amatoria)

probably the "In Castel Durante" Painter Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 950

The woman painted on this bella donna footed bowl, or coppa, is identified as "Beautiful Livia." She wears a silk velvet cap, or scufia, with a jewel at the center and a necklace of black cord, whose pendant is tucked into her bodice—fashionable attire of the period. It is one of a group of bowls celebrating women, including caterina bella, elisabetta bella, and aura bella, that seem to have been painted in Urbino or Castel Durante, and some of which were also lustered in Gubbio.
