1702

$1,175

About

"Pianta del Finestrone, Prospetto del finestrone con suoi ornamenti nel mezzo della naue maggiore per fianco nella Basilica di S. Gio. in Laterano" is an architectural engraving of an elevation of monumental windows with their associated columns and ornaments above an entrance to the Basilica of S. Gio. In Laterano in Rome, the Cathedral of the Most Holy Savior and of Saints John the Baptist and the Evangelist in the Lateran, also known as the Papal Archbasilica of Saint John in Lateran. It is the church of the Diocese of Rome which serves as the seat of the Roman Pontiff. The print was engraved by Alessandro Specchi (1668-1729), an engraver and architect, after a design by the Italian architect Francesco Borromini (1599-1667). It was published by Domenico de Rossi (1659–1730) as plate 66 in "Studio d'Architettura Civile sopra gli ornamenti di Porte Finestre tratti de alcube Fabbriche insigni de Roma…." in 1702. The three folio volumes of architectural engravings included elevations and frontal views of Baroque palazzi and churches in Rome. This copperplate engraving is presented in a gold-colored wood frame with a cream-colored French mat highlighted by a beige-colored band and embellished by a gold fillet.
