Living Room with Egyptian Idols
Living Room with Egyptian Idols
Madrid, Biblioteca Nacional. The National Library in Madrid. Silvestre Perez y Martinez (1767-1825): "Borrador de una sala de dos alcobas, adornada con idolos egipcios para casa dela Sra. marquesa de Santiago": "Sketch for a living room with two chambers, decorated with Egyptian idols for the house of the Marchioness of Santiago" . Front view of one of the walls of a hall of the Madrilenian palace, located in the Carrera de San Jeronimo, of the 4th Marchioness of Santiago, dona Maria Soledad Fernandez de los Rios; the hall connected with two rooms, the doors of which were flanked by two telamones representing Antinous. The Marchioness of Santiago, Dona Maria de la Soledad Rodriguez de los Rios y Jauche Lasso de la Vega, was the wife of the 3rd Marchees of San Adrian, Don Jose Maria de Magallon y Armendariz. Both were painted by Francisco de Goya in 1804, following the fashion of the double portraits. Goya did these two famous portraits following the British Neo-classical tradition of placing the figures in an open-air setting, as he had done before when he painted the portrait of the Duchess of Alba. This drawing by the Neo-classical architect Silvestre Perez y Martinez (1767-1825), is an example of the Spanish Egyptomania. This architect lived in Rome from 1790 and 1796, where he most probably visited the famous Stanza Egizia of the Villa Borghese Pinciana ordered by Prince Marcoantonio IV Borghese (1730-1800), and the Salone Egizio of the Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, both designed by Antonio Asprucci (1723-1808), and decorated by his son Mario and the painter Tomasso Conca. The walls of Asprucci's Egyptian living-room of the palace of the Massimo princes is decorated with painted telamones clearly inspired in the statue of Antinous as Osiris and in the telamones of Antinous, the famous statues in Egyptian style, found in the ruins of the Villa Hadriana, and now exhibited in the Vatican Museums. The famous Spanish Neo-classical architect Silvestre Perez y Martinez, a protegee of King Joseph I Bonaparte, exiled himself in Paris after the fall of the Napoleonic Regime, and the return of King Ferdinand VII. It was in Paris, where, in 1816, Silvestre Perez designed two funerary monuments inspired in the Egyptian tombs drawn by Louis-Jean Desprez (ca.1743-1804) a French painter and architect who worked in Sweden during the last twenty years of his life. In the Haga Palace outside Stockholm, Desprez designed for King Gustav III a Royal stable, where statues of Antinous as Osiris stood as supervisors of the horses belonging to a royal household... If Hadrian would raise his head!
We (or I guess I should say 'I') have been doing some living room rearrangement to make room for a corner-workspace area. Because working at home with a near-walker is INTERESTING. The tv used to be over to the right in the corner where the new desk is, at an angle to the room. The bookcase was over a bit to the right on the far wall (covering up those two spackle spots) and the well where the tv is now was pretty much empty, mainly filled with the pack-and-play and toys. The new configuration wastes much less space. And space is at a premium these days with ALL THE TOYS EVERY-FREAKING-WHERE.
