William Godwin's Diary


With the artist James Barry, Godwin went to see this series in scagliola executed for the Earl of Orford by Italian painter John Baptist Locatelli consisting of a figure of Hercules, aided by Theseus, dragging Cerberus from Tartarus. The pedestal, which sustains these figures, contains four large basso relievos, representing the Twelve Labours of Hercules.
