Lunette painting

Casino dell'Aurora, Villa Boncompagni Ludovisi, Rome

On the short sides of the Sala dell'Aurora are two lunettes which fill the space beneath the imaginary centre opening. On the left side sits a winged youth holding a torch in his raised left hand. He can be identified as the personification of Day.
