Label:
The difference of painting styles between the central image and the surrounding border point to the execution by two artists. Numerous pieces of maiolica depict triumphant sea creatures, subjects generally popular in Renaissance art. The Patanazzi—a dynasty active for several generations—continued the style of the Fontana family, to whom they were related, into the seventeenth century.
