by Bartoli, Pietro Santi

Bartoli's TRAJAN’S COLUMN classical relief engraved plate #29. One of the greatest relief sculptures ever carved, narrating the victorious campaigns against the Dacians who were defeated in 104AD by Emperor Marcus Ulpius Trajanus (52-117AD), who became Emperor in 98AD. On top, a statue of St Peter replaces the statue of the emperor, destroyed in the middle-ages.

Original (hand-coloured) copperplate engraving circa 1673, by Roman artist-engraver Pietro Santi Bartoli (1635-1700), who studied painting in Paris with eminent artists Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) and Pierre Lemaire (1612-1688). Bartoli aspired to the essence of Raphael’s superb classical frescoes at the Vatican.
