An Allegory of Painting
by E. Tell

Carved in great detail in Carrara marble, the female figure, seemingly in flight, holds a paintbrush and a palette.

Italian, Circa 1890


The artist E. Tell is primarily associated with the renowned Austrian Goldscheider porcelain manufactory, founded by Freidrich Goldscheider in 1885 (1845-1897). Many famous artists including Josef Lorenzl and Michael Powolny worked for the firm. Tell contributed a series of terracotta sculptures of seated maidens painting with a palette in their hands to Goldscheider, of which this marble is most likely an opulent prototype.
