"Albarello" with a Shepherdess Lifting Her Skirt

Walters Art Museum

About the work

curationist logo

Albarello jars held contents of dry medicinal herbs and were decorated using colorful glazes. The suggestive nature of the shepherdess adjusting her loosely draped garment would have appealed to recently married upper-class couples. In the case of this albarello, the original contents can be assumed to have held provisions that promoted fertility.
