Ballroom decoration

Palazzo Incontri, Florence

The Incontri family in Florence had their palace ballroom painted in anticipation of a wedding in 1702. Simulated sculptural groupings depict noted abductions - appropriately enough, given the upcoming celebration - and a huge coat of arms flanked by genii appears at the level of the cornice.
