Italian Oil on Canvas Depicting Coriolanus

Stock No.16489

A fine and large Italian oil on canvas en grisaille depiciting Volumnia and Veturia with their retinue pleading with Coriolanus to make peace with Rome.
The later frame is silver gilt but the painting was perhaps at one time, part of a larger architectural scheme. In cities such as Venice, where damp was a risk, large oil on canvases were used as they resisted the damp and humidity, and could be moved during periods of flooding.

Italian, 19th century.

This scene was immortalised by Shakespeare's play Coriolanus, believed to have been based on the life of the Roman leader, Caius Marcius Coriolanus.
