About

Antique Italian copper-line engraving of the bust of Roman Emperor Vespasian and his consort Antonia by Carlo Gregori after Giovanni Domenica Campiglia’s series “Musei Capitolini,” a series of work inspired by the sculptures of the Capitoline Museum in Rome. “Vespasian was Roman emperor from 69 to 79. The fourth and last in the Year of the Four Emperors, he founded the Flavian dynasty that ruled the Empire for 27 years. He reformed the financial system of Rome after the campaign against Judaea ended successfully, and initiated several ambitious construction projects, including the building of the Flavian Amphitheatre, better known today as the Roman Colosseum. After the death of his wife, Vespasian's long-standing mistress, Antonia Caenis, became his wife in all but formal status, a relationship that continued until she died in 75.” “Carlo Gregori was an Engraver and etcher from an Italian family of engravers; born 1702 in Lucca, active in, and died 1759 in Florence; studied with Johann Jakob Frey in Rome before pursuing his career in Florence. He made prints after Old Master paintings by, for example, Titian, Rubens and Correggio and also reproduced artists' portraits. His engravings illustrated some important 18th century publications, including Ignazio Enrico Hugford's work (1762) on Anton Domenico Gabbiani. He primarily signed with his name in full, but also used an interwoven monogram of c and g.” “Giovanni Domenico Campiglia (1692–1768) was an Italian painter and engraver from Florence, active under the patronage of the House of Medici. Measures: Sans frame - 7.25” x 11.25”.
