Description
Francesco Xanto Avelli da Rovigo (c. 1486–1542) painted some of the most beautiful and fascinating ceramics of Renaissance Italy. With surfaces entirely painted with scenes from classical literature, Roman history, or the Bible, his dishes resembled illuminated manuscripts or stained-glass windows, and were much sought after by the educated elite of his time. They continue to fascinate ceramics enthusiasts today, and the colors of his works appear as fresh now as when the pieces were first made. Xanto was also a poet, and commented on the tempestuous events of his time—including the 1527 Sack of Rome—both in verse and in allegorical imagery. This catalogue spotlights 56 ceramic pieces with large color plates and transcribes Xanto's sonnets into English.
