Allegory of July: Triumph of Jupiter

Fresco, 500 x 320 cm
Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara

The upper scene depicts the Triumph of Jupiter as an allegory of July. To the left is a wedding, and monks at a sanctuary, to the right clerics and knight, and a young man resting can be seen. In the centre the astrological symbol Leo, below Duke Borso receives dignitaries.

The attribution to Tura is debated.
