Catalogue Note

This is a preliminary sketch for Carlone's ceiling fresco in Schloss Ludwigsburg, the grand residence of Eberhard-Ludwig, Duke of Württemberg. The fresco depicting the Sacrifice of Iphigenia was part of a larger decorative scheme for Ahnensaal (Ancestors' Hall). Painted in 1730-33, the Ahnensaal scenes depict Roman and Greek mythology as well as allegories of the arts and sciences. The standing soldier at right is repeated in a composition by Carlone now in the Musee des Beaux Arts, Strasbourg (see 1990 exhibition catalogue, cat. no. 8).
