Description

Iconic Etching from 1822 created by Luigi Rossini (1790 - 1857) was an Italian artist, best known for his etchings of ancient Roman architecture.

Rossini was born in Ravenna, and studied at the Academy of Bologna with Antonio Giuseppe Basoli and Giovanni Antonio Antolini, graduating in 1813 as an architect and artist.

Like his predecessor Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Rossini focused on extant antique Roman architecture and excavations in Rome and its environs, and rendered in exquisite detail classical architecture of Rome and its surrounding countryside. In contrast to Piranesi, he made greater use of the bucolic settings in his etchings of Roman ruins. His images of the architectural masterpieces of ancient Rome, including the Pantheon, the Coliseum, the Appian Way, the Temple of Peace, and the Golden House of Nero, have greatly influenced architects, artists, writers, and other connoisseurs of Roman culture up to the present day.

His first series of views was published in 1814. He began his Roman antiquities series in 1819, completing 101 large folio plates which were published in Rome in 1825.

Veduta di Ponte Cestio...the bridge still stands today, easily recognizable from this etching from almost 200 years ago.

It was built by Lucius Cestius in 46 BC consisting of a large central arch and two smaller arches at the ends. It was renovated in 152 AD and again in 370 AD and 1191-1193.

This original etching is unframed and will be shipped in a tube.
There is a water stain in the upper left corner. Please use Zoom function. Otherwise the Lithograph is in very good condition.
