L’archivio Boncompagni Ludovisi e gli affreschi di Guercino per il Casino dell‘Aurora
The Archivio Boncompagni Ludovisi, most of which today resides in the Vatican, offers little documentation directly relevant to the mural paintings in the Casino dell’Aurora. Yet a number of factors, either new or so far neglected, offer grounds for optimism. Documents from especially the period 1895-1906, when the young American Academy in Rome rented the Casino dell’Aurora, have led to the recent discovery in the home of hidden ceiling paintings (one from the 1570s or 1580s, another from the 1850s), and hold out the promise of further discoveries, including a missing fresco of a satyr attributed to Guercino.
