Relief with Amorino


Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

Greek marble bas-relief drawing on classic inspiration, depicting a winged putto, probably captured in a pose of holding up a table. In its manners, it is reminiscent of Roman models from the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D., when such figures held up symbols of the Olympian Gods. Similar references to classic reliefs can be witnessed in Mantua in the transennae of San Sebastian, but also in the Camera degli Sposi by Mantegna, in the famous scene of the putti with the dedicatory plaque.
