Pluto

.

Many artists of great repute have painted this god, the three most famous being that by Jule-Romain (1492–1546), a pupil of Raphael, in Mantua; one by Augustin Carrache (1558–1601), in Modēna, generally called Il Famoso; and the third by Luc Giordano (1632–1701), in the gallery of the Palace Riccardi. Raphael has introduced Pluto in his Assembly of the Gods.

⁂ In the Villa Albani of Rome is the famous antique statue of Pluto and Cerberus.
