Notes:
Three Roman atlantes that formerly supported a fountain at the Villa Albani, Rome. They belong to a group of four characters similar in those found in the theatre of Dionysos in Athens. Abundantly restored, they were transformed into the support of a fountain basin by Cardinal Albani (1692-1779): as such they are seen in the works of several contemporary painters, including Hubert Robert.
