MASTER of the Castello della Manta
(active 1410s in Piedmont)
Copy of the Sala Baronale1884
Parco del Valentino, Rocca Medievale, Turin
In the nineteenth-century copy of the Sala Baronale in the Castello della Manta, the votive niche with the Crucifixion, so seemingly inappropriate to that era's notion of the knightly life of the late Middle Ages, was omitted and a throne substituted for the fireplace.
