The Devoted Classicist guesses that this work was executed after his formal break with that group in 1948. The artist's work always featured symbolism and color, but unfortunately nothing specific can be related about this particular work.
The color images are from ALBERTO PINTO CLASSICS, published by Rizzoli, 2001. The black & white image is from DECORATION, VOLUME II, published by French & European Publications, 1963. The previous entries in The Travellers series can be revisited by clicking on the key words chimneypiece, folding screen, and sunburst clock.
