Wisdom

1770. Oil on canvas Room 089

Paired with P07726, P07727 y P07729. These are sketches for cartoons for tapestries intended to adorn the King’s Antechamber known as the “Pieza de Conversación” in the Royal Palace of Madrid. Based on the allegories painted by Corrado Giaquinto for the equivalent room in the Palace at Aranjuez, they are notable for the apocalyptic symbols, such as the dove of the Holy Sprit conveying God´s message to the personification of Prophecy, which will be fulfilled with the Triumph of the Mystic Lamb, to which Wisdom points.
