This impressive and powerful drawing depicts the mythological story of the Fall of the Giants.  A subject painted by many artists, two famous representations are Giulio Romano's, Salone dei Giganti, Palazzo del Te, Mantua and also Perino del Vaga's ceiling fresco in the Palazzo dei Principe, Genoa.

In the present sheet we witness Jupiter in the clouds hurling his thunderbolts upon the giants who are attempting to overthrow him.  Ademollo has captured both the power and struggle of this myth, producing a dramatic and bold drawing.  Luigi Ademollo trained in Milan and Rome and at the age of twenty-five travelled to Florence where he remained for the rest of his career.  He became one of the leading Neo-Classical painters in Tuscany, executing important commissions in Palazzo Pitti, Pucci and Capponi.
