Architecture Print. Temple of the Winds. Plate V. Architectural Details.

by Basire, James

Architectural Relief on a Column Capital. Temple of the Winds. Plate 5 Architectural Detail.

Reproduction of a copperplate-engraved architectural detail by James Basire. Originally published in London circa 1770. This is a classic architecture print, and looks great in a group of three with the Ionic Column and the Corinthian Column Capital.

James Basire (1730-1802) studied engraving with his father who was a London engraver of maps. Basire was then apprenticed to engraver Richard Dalton, and accompanied a patron to Rome in order to study the works of Raphael. After his return to London Basire acquired a reputation for fine engravings of portraits, architecture, and antiquarian scenes. Between 1760 and 1795 Basire was official engraver to the Society of Antiquaries, and was appointed engraver to the Royal Society in 1770, and was a well-respected teacher and engraving master.

This is a fine print on thick paper with a cream background. We also have printed it with grey background for a wonderful companion to Piranesi's Vases, if you are hanging a group of Classic Architecture. Paper size 49 x 32cm (19.25 x 12.5 inches).
