Description

Description: moulded in relief with an apparent narrative unfolding in three scenes from left to right and divided by architectural elements, the first vignette depicting the encounter of a man and woman accompanied by a dog, a phallus on a column at left, the second showing a man and woman embracing in a doorway, and the third two couples engaging in sexual activity on couches, egg-and-dart moulding along the lower edge, a fragmentary Latin inscription engraved prior to firing above the scenes. Dimensions: 32.5 by 59cm., 12 7/8 by 23 1/4in. Provenance: Dr. Sylvia Senter (1921-2013), New York, probably acquired by her mother in Rome in the 1960s (consistent with style of custom-made base and mounting) by descent to the present owner
