Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0351 Giulio Romano

Norm Holland's suggestion is very interesting, but Giulio Romano's
painting of Ceres in the Louvre looks like a painting of a
sculpture-quite different, say, from his Jove Seducing Olimpia. See
plates 14 and 16 in Stephen Orgel's Imagining Shakespeare.  Ceres is not
mentioned in WT but Proserpina is.  And given Hermione's loss of Perdita
which (at least vaguely) mirrors Ceres' loss of Proserpina, I am not yet
prepared to give up Giulio for Gian.  Of course, I suppose Shakespeare
could have mixed up the two artists, especially if he had seen the work
of neither.
