Description

An original steel engraving  By Luigi Rossini. Rossini studied in Rome between 1817 - 1824. Having abandoned an architectural career due to economic reasons, he commenced the etching/ engraving, (technically 'Mixed Media engravings') of over a thousand large plates of ancient architecture of that city. The greater part of his work appeared in a collected edition of seven Imperial folio volumes published in Rome in 1829, under the title LE ANTICHITA ROMANE [The Rome of Antiquity, a collection of the most interesting Views of Ancient Rome. Drawn and engraved by the Architect and Engraver Luigi Rossini., Rome, Scudellari, 1819-29].

Collectively, the plates have strength and vigour in their execution, especially in dealing with masses of dark stone work, for they commemorate the strength and beauty of Roman masonry, and reflect Rossini's ability to capture the detail that made Roman architecture so splendid and enduring.

Mounted under glass and framed in antique gilt and ebonised frame.

Dimensions

Description

Luigi Rossini's "Avanzi del Tempio della Concordia" is an original engraving and etching created in 1817. This impression originates from "Le Antichita Romane: Ossia Raccolta delle piu Interessanti Vedute di Roma Antica". It is printed on early 19th century thick wove paper and signed and dated by the nineteenth century Italian artist, Luigi Rossini in the plate. Rossini etched two views of "Tempio Concordia for 'Le Antichita Romane'".

 

Luigi Rossini: The last great etcher of Roman antiquities, Luigi Rossini graduated as both an artist and an architect from the Academy of Bologna. Coming to Rome in 1813, Luigi Rossini's first 'Vedute' were published the following year. Like his great predecessor, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Rossini most often etched his large and impressive views in series form. Some of Luigi Rossini's most famous series include, 'Le Antichita dei controni di Roma', 'I Sette Colli di Roma antica e moderna', 'Gli Archi Trionfali Onorari e Funebri degli Antichi Romani' and 'Le Antichita di Pompei'.
Etched in 1817, Avanzi del Tempio della Concordia originates from 'Le Antichita Romane: Ossia Raccolta delle piu Interessanti Vedute di Roma Antica'. Luigi Rossini began this magnificent series of Roman antiquities in 1819 and the final completed version of one hundred and one large plates was published in Rome in 1823. This original etching is indicative of his fine work from this set.

 

Mounted in water gilt antique frame and under glass.

Title  Large Original engraving by J WOOD of Speculum Dianae or lake NEMI by Richard WILSON

Dimensions

heigth 73cm

Width 66 cm

Depth 4 cm

 


Description

An original steel engraving after the famous painting by R Wilson of the "mirror of Diana" or lake Nemi.

Callisto was a nymph seduced by Jupiter when disguised as Diana. The scene comes from Ovid's Metamorphoses lines 401-530 and especially 441-465, where the virgin huntress has just discovered her handmaiden's pregnancy and is banishing her. Callisto's child will be the forefather of the Arcadian people. Since ancient times Lake Nemi had been associated with the cult of the goddess. Virgil and other classical writers had described the smooth, rounded lake as the Speculum Dianae or Mirror of Diana and as such, it was frequently mentioned in 18th century guide-books. Her famous sanctuary, the Grove of Diana, was on the northern shore of the lake, beneath the little town of Nemi (in Latin, Nemus Aricinum). However, the present landscape features Dolbadarn Castle in silhouette with Mount Snowdon beyond, though the classical connotations of the lake are strengthened by the introduction of Diana herself, chastising the errant nymph.

Lettered below image with title, 'In the collection of Hen. Hoare Esqr.' and publication line: 'Painted by R. Wilson', 'Engrav'd by J. Wood' and publication line: 'Published by J. Boydell, Engraver in Cheapside, London 1764'; a note about the lake inscribed in ink at lower right of sheet.  original engraving can be viewed in the British Museum .
