Original, beautifully detailed double sided antique photo print showing the marvellous "Guglia Maggiore" of the cathedral of Milan, printed in cca.1890.

Duomo is a generic Italian term for a cathedral church. The formal word for a church that is presently a cathedral is cattedrale; a Duomo may be either a present or a former cathedral. Italian cathedrals are often highly decorated and contain notable artworks; in many cases the buildings themselves are true artworks.

Milan Cathedral, Italian: Duomo di Milano is the cathedral church of Milan in Lombardy, northern Italy. Dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente (Saint Mary Nascent), it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan.
In 1386, Archbishop Antonio da Saluzzo began construction in a rayonnant Late Gothic style more typically French than Italian. Borromeo and Pellegrini strove for a new, Renaissance appearance for the cathedral, that would emphasise its Roman / Italian nature, and subdue the Gothic style, which was now seen as foreign.

The size of the print (including its white border): 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm)

There are images on both sides of the paper. The reverse side shows a large window of the cathedral.

However the print is in good condition and the paper shows its age with a creamy, "sephia-like" patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 120 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
