Architectural 3 Palladio.


Palladio + The Italians, Classical Engravings etc



 

Andrea Palladio ( 30 November 1508 – 19 August 1580) was an Italian architect active in the Republic of Venice. Palladio, influenced by Roman and Greek architecture, primarily by Vitruvius, is widely considered to be the most influential individual in the history of architecture. All of his buildings are located in what was the Venetian Republic, but his teachings, summarized in the architectural treatise, The Four Books of Architecture, gained him wide recognition all sold at present

Copper engraving by Ottaviani after drawings by Savorelli and Camporesi, printed in light brown coloured ink with contemporary hand-colouring. from the famous "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano" series, with possibly contemporary colouring of the highest quality from the golden age of the hand-coloured print.A very fine image from the first part of a work titled "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano" depicting the decorative work executed by Raphael and his assistants between 1518-1519 in the Vatican. This remarkable print, one of the first to be published of the decoration of the Logge on the main storey of the Vatican apartments, was probably planned as early as 1760, but was not executed until between 1772 and 1776. The project as a whole was carried out by the painter Gaetano Savorelli, the draughtsman Ludovico Teseo, the architect Pietro Camporesi, and the engravers Giovanni Ottaviani and Giovanni Volpato. The plate is remarkable not only as the first important visual record of Raphael's work, but also for the quality of the hand-colouring and stunningly for still being a complete page and having avoided the Victorian butchers who often divided them into sections.This image was too large for one engraving plate. Two copperplates were engraved to show the magnitude of each elaborate pilaster. This image, with the two plates joined as intended, measures approximately 1050 x 440 cm (41.25 x 17.25 inches)


 

Frescoed Pilasters from Loggia di Rafaele nel Vaticano / Loggia of Raphael in the Vatican 1 Musical Instruments

  Painted originally by  Raphael Sanzio d'Urbino (1483-1520)  Engravings drawn by Ludovico Teseo   then engraved by Giovanni Volpato (1740-1803)
  Published in Rome: 1775-76Architectural fresco studies from the 83-plate survey of the ornamental frescoes designed by Raphael for Pope Leo X’s Loggia, an open-sided vaulted gallery in the Vatican.  The collection of prints published  comprised a series of architectural studies of arches and ceilings, pilaster columns, and doors.  The frescoed arches with classical festoons and grotesque ornament are surmounted in vaults by frescoes of biblical stories. The frescoed pilasters (flat painted columns) with similar ornament line the hallways below the arches and are of varying sizes. ** In order to get the size of the paper several sheets were fixed together when issued. These have been remargined to the base  with eighteenth century paper to match ( hence larger labelled pic to show the work). Some have minor edge nicks and will frame stunningly well in a gilt frame. . .  the last ones I framed had a gilt filet to the mount too ! All these four are the same size and could be framed to match. Sold as is  due to sizebut can get framed if needed
