Blessed Osanna Andreasi's House, Season Hall

Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

In this frescoed section on the east wall of the room we see grotesques painted with swift strokes: angles with last judgement trumpets, a satyr holding a banner, the god Saturn intent on adjusting a clock, and a reference to autumn: two men fabricating two large barrels that will be soon filled with wine. Run down houses, city landscapes, fantastic animals, even two small smiling moons, a waning moon and a waxing moon. Imagination is given free rein, we could say, in a mix of colour and plaster.
