Allegory of August: Triumph of Ceres (detail)

Fresco, 103 x 320 cm
Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara

This detail shows the middle layer (zodiac sign Virgo) of the allegory of August. In the centre we can see a man figure symbolizing the Calculus, on the left the figure of Providence, on the right the Gratitude.

The attribution of this fresco is debated, part of the fresco is attributed to either Cossa or Roberti.
