Exhibit Details

This exhibit will showcase a series of etchings by the 19th century Italian artist Luigi Rossini. Formally educated as both an etcher and architect, Rossini compiled this group of etchings between 1819 and 1823. The series beautifully represents his mastering of both etching and architectural draftsmanship as he recorded the excavation of Roman ruins. Views of sites throughout Rome are included with images of the Colosseum, the Basilica of Maxenitus and Constantine, the Pantheon, and Capitoline Hill. Exhibit organized by Blair-Murrah Exhibitions.
