Ceiling of the Marble Hall, Clandon Park
Ceiling of the Marble Hall, Clandon Park
The fine decorative plaster ceiling of the Marble Hall of Clandon Park photographed in 1981.

The central circular relief depict Hercules and Omphale from Greek and Roman mythology in role reversal. Hercules and Omphale are surrounded by four female figures representing the virtues of Justice, Prudence, Fortitude and Temperance, each shown with their attributes. Traditionally the ceiling has been attributed to Guiseppe Artari (d.1769). Sadly this ceiling was destroyed by fire on 29 April 2015.

This is scanned from a Kodachrome slide and I sure this is the correct way round. I have seen a picture of this ceiling on a National Trust website on the internet which is back to front when compared with this picture. Obviously with this ceiling destroyed I cannot go back to check.
