19th Century Italian Neo Classical “Veduta del Romano Campidoglio” Engraving
Decorate an office or study with this antique colored engraving. Hand colored in Italy circa 1822, the large monochromatic etching is set in a silvered frame with protective glass, and depicts “Veduta del Romano Campidoglio” in Rome. The decorative wall decor is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns wonderful details. Provenance paper in the back with date authentication. Among the earliest subjects of the Vedute, not surprisingly, was the seat of Christendom, Saint Peter’s Basilica, and many of the other subjects Piranesi etched and hoped to sell to tourists are the sites that visitors still seek out today—the Colosseum, the ancient arches and baths, the Piazza Navona, the Campidoglio, and the major churches. Measures: 32.5″ W x 27″ H.
