unknown Petrarca Trionfi (collection)

#1
I think, we need a place to collect unknown pictures of Petrarca Trionfi. "Bianca's Garden" seems to be a good place for this:

As "known" I see the Trionfi pictures as given at the following wikipedia collections, which to great part go back to Michael J. Hurst's activities:

Love ... 43 pictures

Father Time accompanied by the 4 seasons
Cet ancien hôtel particulier construit pour la famille Le Roux entre 1499 et 1532 est doté d'une façade principale dans la cour intérieure qui conserve encore des éléments de l'art gothique et des fenêtres à meneaux. On y remarque la salamandre, emblème de François 1er au centre.

À gauche de cette façade, on découvre une tourelle polygonale, jadis entièrement recouverte de sculptures Renaissance. La plupart a disparu avec sa destruction quasi-complète en 1944. On a donc restitué la tour avec une partie de ses bas-reliefs qui figuraient des scènes pastorales, mais redonné à la toiture son aspect initial avec son épi de faîtage.

L'aile en retour de gauche est constituée d'une galerie Renaissance a l'Italienne appelée « galerie d'Aumale » et ornée de bas-reliefs sculptés dans la pierre calcaire. Le registre supérieur représente six scènes allégoriques des Triomphes de Petrarque, dont deux extrêmement mutilées, quant au registre inférieur, il montre une scène historique contemporaine du monument : l'entrevue du Camp du Drap D'Or.

L'extérieur a subi de nombreux remaniements aux XIXe et XXe siècles. Le porche d'entrée est décoré des deux léopards normano-angevins soutenant les armes de la famille de Bourgtheroulde et du porc-epic symbole du roi Louis XII. La petite tourelle en encorbellement, une échauguette qui ornait l'angle plat à gauche du porche, menaçait ruine au début du XIXe siècle, frappée d'alignement, elle fut supprimée. Elle a été rebâtie à l'identique de 2009 à 2010.

Mantegna painted Petrarca motifs for theater play decoration in 1501, likely in Mantova

From thread ...
collection theater and theater plays
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=591
The lowest tier of the stage was hung
with the Triumphs of Petrarch, also painted by
Mantegna
, and large golden candelabra hung from
the centre of the roof, each holding three double
rows of torches and a shield with the arms of His
Caesarean Majesty, the black eagle with the royal and
imperial diadem.
Another part of the decoration are six pictures from Mantegna to the Triumph of Caesar.

Added:
I find 6 Petrarca motifs given to a follower of Mantegna ...

Madrid, Biblioteca Nacional de España, Vitr. 22-4
Petrarca. Trionfi

from
http://www.facsimilefinder.com/facsimil ... -facsimile

A very small edition ... 11.5 × 7.5 cm ... Franscesco D’Antonio del Chierico or the Florentine artist Ricciardo di Nanni are suggested as illuminators.

again: Daphne and Apollo appear in the decoration.

One might think, that the story appears in Petrarca's text. True, but with some distance ...
Behold the jealous Juno, and the blond
Apollo, who once scorned the youthful bow
That dealt him such a wound in Thessaly
.
What shall I say? To put it briefly, then,
All Varro' s gods are here as prisoners,
And, burdened with innumerable bonds,
Before the chariot goes Jupiter.

Palazzo Pio at Carpi had a camera di Trionfi.
Manfredo Pio, il capostipite della famiglia, era un grande amico del Petrarca e Lionello Pio, in occasione del suo matrimonio con Caterina Pico della Mirandola nel 1474, fa affrescare una sala con rappresentazioni allegoriche che si richiamano ai temi del lavoro petrarchesco: Amore-Castità-Morte-Fama-Tempo-Eternità. E’ rimasto molto poco degli affreschi.

In the same article appear also two other pictures, possibly connected to the room.

Here is a triumph of Time, now in Venice, attributed to Giovanni dal Ponte by someone. Paul Watson, Voluptas and Virtus in Cassone Painting, 1970, pp. 427-8, says of this attribution:
There is little in the picture, however, that suggests his manner. Moreover, the iconographic type of the panel is much later in time than Giovanni's recorded activity.
Perhaps there are others in the series. Information (or misinformation) at:

Strozzi 174

https://www.artcodex.it/opere/petrarca/ ... hp?id=img9
Petrarch, Trionfi
Florence, Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, Strozzi 174, 15th century

Written in calligraphic mercantesca script with humanistic features and bearing the subscription of the scribe, the money-changer Bese Ardinghelli, the manuscript contains Petrarch’s Trionfi, preceded by eight folios with sonnets and portraits of famous figures. The illustrations for the Trionfi have been attributed to the Florentine artist Apollonio di Giovanni (1415/17–65), an illuminator and painter who specialized in the decoration of bridal chests, spalliere and devotional paintings. Fol. 28v depicts the Triumph of Chastity, impersonated by the poet’s beloved Laura, who is standing on a cart hauled by two unicorns; the naked figure of the defeated Cupid can also be seen kneeling on the cart. According to the tradition of medieval bestiaries, unicorns could only be tamed by virgins, and therefore evoked purity.
