A fine pair of late 18th or early 19th Century Neapolitan Grand Tour oil paintings of classical Maenads after original frescoes found in the villas of the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, essential stops on the Grand Tours of the 18th Century. Both are signed, probably by local artists. Oil on canvas in period gilded frames. Beautiful, evocative examples. Italian, circa 1880.
