Cabinet near the Yellow Room
Beautifully frescoed walls with “Landscapes and putti with banners” about 1756 maybe by Giovanni Angeloni (1740/88) and the Pozzi brothers
Room of Embroidery
“Gentlewoman with violin” by Domenico Puligo (1492/1527)
“In the portraits by Puligo there is the tendency of creating types. (...) They have that certain pose that corresponds to the convention of the time and therefore, for the specialized portraitist, it seemed the main thing” (Hermann Voss)
Tapestry Room
Large tapestry woven by the manufactures of Faubourg Saint-Marcel
“Adoration of the Magi” by the Master of the Legend of St. Barbara
This is the central panel of a triptych whose doors are kept at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. This artist was active in Belgium in the late fifteenth century
Interesting in this painting a representation of S. Joseph on the left while making a mousetrap, symbolism derived from St. Augustine and common in the northern European sacred iconography that describes the Cross as a trap for the devil
Two small but important paintings: “Madonna and Child” and “Virgin of the Annunciation” by the phantasmagoric Cosmè Tura (about 1433/95)
“Deposition” and “Massacre of the Innocents” by Jacopo del Sellaio (1442/93)
“St. Augustine” and “Dead Christ Supported by the Virgin Mary and an angel” by Carlo Crivelli (about 1435/94)
