Item Details
Description
After Perino del Vaga (Italian, 1501-1547)

Horatius Cocles Defending the Bridge
Unsigned.
Ink and wash on paper, sight size 13 1/2 x 20 1/2 in. (34.4 x 52.0 cm), framed.
Condition: Creasing, foxing, tear to l.r. edge, not examined out of frame.

Provenance: A Connecticut estate.

N.B. This subject was very popular among 16th and 17th century European artists. Publius Horatius Cocles was an officer in the army of the early Roman Republic who famously defended the Pons Sublicius from the invading Etruscan army in the late 6th century BCE. By defending the narrow end of the bridge, he and his companions were able to hold off the attacking army long enough to allow other Romans to destroy the bridge behind him, blocking the Etruscans' advance and saving the city. The drawing at hand is likely Italian, 17th century. A later inscription on the frame backing paper relates this drawing back to a ceiling painting by Perino del Vaga in the Doria Palance in Genoa.
