About

Early 19th century etching entitled "Veduta dello scavo del Foro Trajano" from Luigi Rossini's "Le Antichita Romane" (Ancient Rome), published in Rome in 1823. It depicts the historical victory column of Trajan standing amidst broken ancient Roman columns that lie around it. The column in Trajan's Forum commemorates Roman emperor Trajan's victory in the Dacian Wars. Buildings in the background represent two libraries and the Basilica Ulpia. There are people in the foreground; some walking through the square, some standing observing the scene and others in discussion. The etching is presented in a silver-colored wood frame with an off-white double mat with a black inner mat. It is in very good condition. See item # LU117324669702 for another Rossini etching depicting a portion of the ancient Roman Forum. It is framed and matted in the identical style as the current listing. The pair would make an attractive display grouping of Roman architecture. Please inquire about the discount available for the purchase of the pair of prints. Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) like his predecessor, Giovanni Piranesi, was an architect and artist. Like Piranesi, he wanted to glorify the architecture of ancient Rome, which he felt was deteriorating and needed to be documented. Several of the ruins he illustrated have, in fact, since disappeared leaving only his images as a record of their appearance. His images of the grand edifices of the city dramatically depict the power and glory of ancient Rome reflected by its architecture, but were accurate enough to be used by practicing architects, as well as other serious students of classical antiquity. His art continues to influence and inspire architects, artists and those who love Rome. Rossini was born in Rome and trained at the Academy of Bologna. Upon graduation, he moved to Rome and attempted a career as an architect. As he was not economically successful as an architect, he became a full-time artist, initially producing souvenirs for local collectors, wealthy and aristocratic European tourists on the Grand Tour, as well as for architectural students and practitioners all over Europe. Many of his prints were published in several imperial folio sized collections, including Le Anchita Romane (The Rome of Antiquity).
