Prometheus and Atalanta

The evocative church of San Franceschetto hosts since June  two paintings of one of the most famous painters of the eighteenth century in Lucca: Pompeo Girolami Batoni, at the time much requested by popes, cardinals and rulers from all over Europe. The two masterpieces represent Minerva who infuses the soul into the human figure modeled in clay by Prometheus, and Atalanta weeping Meleager dying.

Both were executed between 1740 and 1743 for the Marquis Lodovico Sardini.
