After Thorvaldsen, Bertel (Danish, 1770-1844)
These antique figurative plaques are impressive not only for their large size, but also for their finely rendered attention to naturalistic detail.
Circular plaques cast in relief, depicting Classical scenes of winged maidens and cherubs with flowers and birds, 'Day' looking back towards a putto who holds a flaming torch that signifies dawn, 'Night' clutching two sleeping cherubim to her breast.
This pair of roundels were modelled after famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's 'Night' and 'Day', which he produced in 1815 and 1816.
