Allegory of Divine Providence...

   The Allegory of Divine Providence and Barberini Power is a fresco by Italian painter Pietro da Cortona.

   Remarkable for:   The painting is an example of adding space and volume to a room, by using false perspective and a layered composition that simulates multiple levels. Architectural elements are also included into the scene, adding to the illusion of open space, a style called quadrature.
