Roman Capriccio, 1735: Canvas Replica Painting: Small
By artist Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691-1765), in Louvre, Paris
This work by 18th-century Rome's foremost view painter, Panini, gives little to the actual topography of the city, yet includes a multitude of landmarks: the Pantheon, the Temple of the Sibyl at Tivoli, the Maison Carree at Nimes, the sarcophagus of Constantine, and the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius. The authentic stretched canvas replica captures the original painting's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
