Putto heads

Hoppner

The portal’s pilasters as well as its cornice corbels and socles are decorated using décor approximating nature, which had just come into fashion, and genuinely Ackermann-like putto heads have been added to the flower garlands decorating its capitals.

The putto heads of the portal in Hopner house are the very first surviving Ackermann-like putto heads.
