Temple of Concordia (Temple of Saturn) reproduction print.

by Rossini, Luigi

Ancient Temple of Saturn at the Roman Forum. (Saturn was the god of Agriculture and Harvest). This engraved image was previously named the Temple of Concordia (after the Roman goddess of harmony, who represented the resolution of conflicts).

Heritage Editions reproduction from an etching drawn “from nature” & incised on a copperplate by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857). Rossini was born in Ravenna, studied art in Bologna with Antonio Giuseppi Basoli (1744-1843), & attended lectures in architecture (which improved his skill as an artist). At 23, he was awarded a prize to study in Rome, where he worked with one of the finest sculptors, Venetian, Antonio Canova (1757-1822). Rossini was greatly influenced by his surroundings in Rome, and the etchings of Roman archaeological antiquities circa 1756 by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) for Piranesi’s grand Le Vedute di Roma (Views of Rome) published circa 1748-78. This work by Rossini was published between 1819 and 1823 for his own very fine views of Roman antiquities Le Antichita Romane.
