Trajan's Column, Rome. Bartoli Pl.75 Antique Print c1673

by Bartoli, Pietro Santi

Plate 75 of classical relief around Trajan's Column in Rome. 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.

Later hand colour. Size of each thick sheet of hand-laid paper: 255 x 430mm (10 x 17 inches)
