SEITER, Daniel
(b. 1647, Wien, d. 1705, Torino)

Ceiling of the Galleria del Daniel (south section)

Palazzo Reale, Turin

The centre picture on the ceiling is framed by two tall ovals in which Seiter depicted Apollo in Triumph over Night, and Venus on a Triumphal Chariot. Cartouche-shaped monochromes link the heavy gold frames of the ovals with the border area.

The present photo shows the oval in the south section of the ceiling. It represents Venus on a Triumphal Chariot, below her Pax, Justitia, and Abundantia.
