Studies for an allegorical ceiling painting relating to the City of London: design for a central oval

RIBA125846
Thornhill, Sir James (1675-1734)
NOTES: This drawing is a copy after Thornhill. The set of drawings depict two different preliminary and final studies for an oval ceiling compartment (four in total), one pair with additional putti representing Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude and Justice. Their postioning suggests that this was for a ceiling of standard Palladio/Jones type with an oval central compartment with square compartments at each end of a type found in both town and country mansions. One has a scale that indicates the oval panel was to be 10 feet long so it is more likely that it was intended for a town rather than a country house.
