Michelangelo Cerruti - Rome

The three-rolled up canvas paintings were discovered in the cellar of an old palace in Rome. The paintings were part of a single artistic venture and are likely to have come from another mansion. The images depict the triumph of Apollo on his chariot surrounded by an illusionistic type of architecture and female figures of the Four Seasons. The work of art was originally displayed on a ceiling and may been framed by painted wooden beams. An ornamental band was probably used to extend the decoration downwards onto the upper part of the walls. Our intervention consisted in completely restoring the three canvas paintings, their pictorial layer and their canvas supports and in reassembling the paintings on various walls.
