Scenes from Tebaldeo's Eclogues

These two panels may have been made to decorate a piece of furniture. The present velvet frame is not original.

The Arcadian story of the shepherd Damon, who commits suicide because of his unrequited love for Amaryllis, is from the 'Eclogues' of the Ferrarese poet Antonio Tebaldeo, published in Venice in 1502. The paintings are possibly decorations for an item of furniture.
