Two garden vases with the Four Seasons, Jacobus Cressant, 1714

marble (rock), h 145.0cm × w 78.0cm × d 78.0. More details

These two vases were almost certainly made for the Elsenburg country estate in Maarssen, the property of Amsterdam merchant Theodoor de Leeuw. The classical shape is decorated in several places with asymmetrical ornaments that herald the Rococo style. Examples are the large scrolls above the reliefs representing the seasons.
