Ceiling decoration

Palazzo Reale, Turin

The picture shows the ceiling with the fresco Night and Dawn in the former queen's bedroom in the Palazzo Reale in Turin. For bedroom ceilings the typical Baroque depiction was that of Aurora. This was followed in the seventeenth century, as we see from the richly decorated ceiling by Daniel Seiter in the Palazzo Reale, which juxtaposes Night and Dawn.
