Paolo FIAMMINGO , about 1540 - 1596

Landscape with the Expulsion of the Harpies


Date: about 1590
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 185 x 206 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1944

The subject of this painting may be taken from the 'Argonautica' of Apollonius. The winged Zetes and Calais, the sons of Boreas, are shown chasing the harpies away from the blind Phineus, whose food had been defiled by the harpies.

The companion piece to this work, 'Landscape with Mythological Figures' also seems to be based on a story from the 'Argonautica'. Both works were previously attributed to Ludovico Pozzoserrato.
