Abstract

This famous masterwork represents the Appelle's Calumny, the ancient painting by Appelles described by Lucian of Samosata in one of his Dialogues. It included ten figures: on the right King Mida, the bad Judge, is enthroned between Suspicion and Ignorance; before him Spite (or Envy) is leading a young woman (Calumny) adorned by Deceit and Duplicity, while she drags naked Innocence along. On the left Penitence an Thruth. On the background marble arcades with sculptures and bas reliefs underline the study of antique by Botticelli.
