About

Antique Scene, Woman and Infant surrounded by guards watercolor, pen and black ink and heightenings of white gouache on paper Signed and dated lower right "Don Giovani Rome 1847" 24.5 x 34.5 cm Modern frame 43 x 53.5 cm In good condition More questions than answers around this very charming watercolor. 19th century french school ? or more probably english school ? Who was the artist who chose to sign Don Giovani ? What's the real subject of this artwork ? These questions are full part of the interest and charm of this original watercolor. The style, execution and theme are very typical of the european culture of the middle of the 19th century, when roman culture was seen from an archeological point of view, with more interest for the daily life of the people of this era. An emblematic novel of this time, "The Last days of Pompei" by Edward George Earle Bulwer-Lytton is published in 1834. It's the cultural background to evoke to answer to our questions and to fully appreciate this artwork.
