Vatican Frieze of Lady with lamp and wreath c1677.

by Bartoli, Pietro Santi

17th century Bartoli vatican fresco antique print, mounted (half-framed) in beautifully-finished mount with rounded sight-edge.

Beautiful fresco of maiden with flowing robes, carrying a flaming torch and a wreath... from frescoes in Vatican Palacio Sixta, built by Pope Sixtus V in the 16th century.. (Residence of the Pope. Sundays at noon the Pope stands at the window and blesses the crowd that gathers in the Vatican square.)

Original copperplate engraving by Pietro Santi Bartoli (1635-1700), published between 1670 and 1677. Bartoli studied in Paris with eminent artists Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) and Pierre Lemaire (1612-1688), and aspired to achieve the beauty and essence of Raphael’s superb classical frescoes.

This engraving is in fine condition - with the usual slight stretching of the paper during printing. The pristine matt is wide, with rounded sight-edge which compliments the beauty of this classical engraving.

The frame window size is 390 x 360mm (15 3/8 x 14 1/8 inches) - ready for choice of frame moulding. (External mount size can be reduced if required.) Size of print is 275 x 330mm (10 7/8 x 13 inches). Image size 165 x 130mm (approx 6 1/2 x 5 1/8 inches).
