Description

In the center, the basin bears the coat of arms of the Veterani family of Urbino, supported by two winged putti; the remaining surface is occupied by a dense "Raphaelesque" decoration with fantastic figures and animals, cameos and masks. This decorative typology derives from the wall paintings of the palaces of ancient Rome, above all of the Domus Aurea, whose hypogean rooms looked like caves to Renaissance visitors and motivated the term "grotesque" to define this decorative sample. The most fortunate outcomes were achieved by Raphael and his circle in the Farnesian residences and in the Vatican Lodges, hence the term "Raphaelesque" to designate the "grotesque" on a white background. Starting from 1560 the "Raphaelesque" also conquered majolica pottery, especially in the Urbino area, where Orazio Fontana's workshop excelled with the production of superb services, carpeted by a rich and refined universe of bizarre creatures and references to the ancient.
