Horatius Cocles Defending the Sublician Bridge, anonymous, c. 1450

tempera on panel, h 40cm × w 128cm. More details

Pieces of Italian furniture, especially chests (cassoni), were often decorated with scenes from legends and Classical antiquity. Although cassoni were painted by some of the most important artists, the majority were produced by anonymous decorative painters. This panel, from one such cassone, depicts the Roman general Horatius Cocles defending the bridge to Rome against the Etruscans.
