Catalogue Note

One of the previous owners of the present painting, John Maxon (see Provenance), was the vice president of the collections and exhibitions in the Art Institute of Chicago. He was a specialist in 16th Century Venetian paintings, and published many articles. Before joining the Art Institute of Chicago, Mr. Maxon served as director for the Spencer Museum of Art, Kansas, and the RISD Museum, Rhode Island.

At the center right of this painting Minerva presents to Jupiter and Juno a female figure with a spear and shield, which is said to be the personification of Spain. This modello, or sketch, relates to a ceiling painting designed by Corrado Giaquinto and executed by one of his collaborators for the Palazzo Santa Croce, Palermo circa 1751, which is now located in the Palazzo Rondanini-Sanseverino, Rome.
