Italian Renaissance ceiling and wall painting, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Italian Renaissance ceiling and wall painting, (1898). 'Fig 1: Ceiling-painting in the Palazzo Doria at Genoa. Fig 2: Pilaster-decoration from the Loggie of the Vatican at Rome. Figs 3 and 4: Panels in a window-niche in the Vatican Museum, ibid...Ornamental wall-and ceiling painting of High-Renaissance is represented in its highest beauty and dignity by the works of Raffaelle and his school, especially in the Loggie of the Vatican. Although a great part of those paintings are not from his own hand, yet they were carried out by his pupils after the master's designs, and in his spirit...To a pupil of Raffaelle also, the paintings in the Palazzo Doria at Genoa are to be ascribed'. Plate 53 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

The Fall of Simon Magus, c. 1745- 1750. Creator: Pompeo Batoni (Italian, 1708-1787), studio of

The Fall of Simon Magus, c. 1745- 1750. Saints Peter and Paul came to Rome to win converts to Christianity soon after Christ's death, while Simon Magus, claiming to be the son of God, attempted to prove his divinity by flying. Due to Saint Peter's prayers, the demons supporting Simon abandoned him and he plummeted to his death.This work is either a study for or a copy of a huge altarpiece commissioned in 1746 for Saint Peter's Basilica at the Vatican. Because of the humidity in Saint Peter's, which quickly ruined paintings, the work was to have been translated into a massive mosaic. However, for reasons that remain unclear, Batoni's mosaic was never created.
