The Marquis in his smart 16th c. city palace had a room wainscoted in azulejos, painted as fully carved and gilded paneling with fat profiles and molding ornaments with allegorical elements. The base has an oversized “shoe-mold” which transitions from reality to the fictional architecture depicted in blue, white and gold.
