The Goddess Cybele offering her Produce to the Earth

1798. Oil on canvas

Sketch for the fresco adorning the ceiling of the Sala de Maria Luisa in the Casa del Labrador at Aranjuez. Beneath Flora in flight is the Earth goddess, Cybele, to whom some farmers pay their respects. On one side is Apollo, god of the sun, with the allegories of the Tagus and Jarama rivers that meet in Aranjuez. On the other is Ceres with sheaves of corn.
