Enthroned Philosophy

Courtesy: Archive of the University of Vienna Originator: Ren Steyer, Institut für Kuntsgeschichte der Universität Wien

Philosophy, with regalia as a symbol for the humanistic ideal of universal philosophical-rhetorical education. The motive is similar to the one of a xylography of Albrecht Dürers Quattuor libri amorum of Conrad Celtis (1502).

Tempera on "Celtis-Kiste" in the Archive of the University ov Vienna.
