Detailed Description

France,
15th century
Rat of Proserpine and Narcissus at the Fonte
Avorio, 3.5 x 4.5 cm

The two splendid ivories depict two scenes taken from Greek mythology, the first focuses on the Rape of Proserpina by Pluto, god of the Underworld, who falls in love at first sight, seeing her picking flowers in a meadow. The god is caught in the moment he descends from the chariot that has guided him from Hades on the earth and with an arm outstretched to try to catch the bride who escapes defenseless. The second scene represents the myth of Narcissus who, after rejecting the love of Eco, was condemned to yearn for his own image reflected in the source until his death and the transfiguration in narcissus, flower with a yellow heart and candidly white corolla. Although the profane and mythological theme is less frequent than the religious one applied to this particular medium, in this case we are faced with an object of great importance and technical expertise in the marked lines that outline the drapery of the garments and the faces of the characters. An intense activity linked to the ivory art is reached in Italy around the XIV century thanks to Baldassarre di Simone d'Aliotto (called of the Embriachi), famous for the realization of a triptych preserved at the Certosa di Pavia. Other examples especially of the gothic era are kept in the National Museum of Ceramics Duca di Martina in Naples. While in France, and especially in the places of Dieppe and Saint Claude, the apogee comes in the fifteenth century and this production stands out for its artistic quality, fineness and clean lines, rarity and preciousness of the support material, which is applied to caskets and small items, such as cameos and medals. The privileged subjects were gospel scenes carved on sacred objects, very often embellished with stones. In the sixteenth century, the taste for the portrait engraved on medals and plaques spreads.
