Lot Essay


A set of four Castelli plaques depicting the Continents, each with a similar scrolling title label as those on the pair in the present lot, were sold by Sotheby's, New York, on 10 October 2013, lot 14, where they were associated with the workshop of Francesco Antonio Saverio Grue. However, the painting on this pair of plaques also shares similarities in style to those painted in the Gentili workshop in the first half of the 18th century.
