Lunette Design with an Allegory of Winter

c. 1688
Paolo Gerolamo Piola (Italian, 1666–1724)
Paolo Girolamo Piola was trained by his artist father, Domenico Piola, in Genoa, and the family studio produced secular and religious paintings in that city for decades. This impressive drawing is a study for a lunette-shaped decoration in the corner of a ceiling in a Brignole family palace, Palazzo Rosso, that now houses one of Genoa's principal art museums.
