Mantelpiece with relief of Paris and Oenone, Jan Baptist Xavery, 1739

marble (rock), h 461cm × w 252cm. More details

This mantelpiece was made for the principal room of the house at 48 Rapenburg in Leiden, where Diederik, Baron van Leyden, lived. Xavery also made a marble relief for each overdoor and probably designed the decorative stucco ceiling, which surrounded a large painting by Jacob de Wit. The walls were hung with tapestries from Brussels. This created an impressive ensemble.
