Lot No. 152


Circle of Anovelo da Imbonate


(Milan active around 1400)
The Triumphs of Fame, Time and Eternity,
oil on panel, a cassone front, overall 40 x 164 cm, integral frame

The present painting is an example of the front of a cassone in the late Gothic Lombard style. The three tondi depict the allegorical figures of Fame, Time and Eternity. The subject relates to the series of poems written by Francesco Petrarca in 1374 called the Triumphs, and was a theme commonly portrayed in Northern Italy. It is probable that the present cassone front was originally a pair with a second representing the three other Triumphs of Petrarca’s literary work.

The present work is influenced by the linear Gothic style of typical Lombard painting and can be compared to the works of Anovelo da Imbonate, a miniaturist and painter working at the Milanese court between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. In particular, similarities can be seen with da Imbonate’s signed Messale for the crowning of the Duca Gian Galeazzo Visconti (1395) in the library of the Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio and the pinnacle depicting the Crucifixion previously in San Giorgio al Palazzo, now in the Museo Diocesano in Milan.
