ITALIAN SCHOOL OF THE XVIth CENTURY: The Tree of Jesse, or the Genealogy of the Savior, Comp. Isiah xi., v. 1. Jesse is represented recumbent at the foot of the vine or tree, which, springing from his loins, spreads out in luxuriant foliage, bearing upon its branches various royal personages with crowns, robes and sceptres, holding labels and illuminated scrolls, upon which are inscribed the names of the bearers. On the right are David, Solomon, Roboam, Abia, and Josaphat; on the left Joram, Ozias, Joatham, Achaz, Ezekias, and Manasses. Above the Tree is the Virgin Mary in glory, with the Infant Savior in her arms, towards whom, however, the stem does not extend on account of his divine incarnation. On panel. 1'11 x 2'1. [P. 9.]
Catalogue of the Carolina Art Association, published by the Art Committee. Charleston, S.C.: Steam Power Press of Walker, Evans & Co. 1858.
