This large, hand-painted Raphael style plate with a scene inspired by Thomas Gainsborough’s painting “Conversation in a Park” is now available in our e-commerce. Around the eighteenth-century scene, 7 medallions on an elaborate of leaves present small raphaelesque – little dragons and dolphins – created on the designs of the ceramist Giovanni Pretolani and painted in bright colors. The medallions stand out against the nuances of the leaves, ranging from spring green to autumn browns.
It is a unique piece, particularly valuable for the great effort required both in terms of decorative capacity and for the hours of work required. Once exposed, you will spend long moments staring at it to catch every detail of its minute decorations.
