Classical Urn with an Art theme. Pergolesi design

by Pergolesi, Michelangelo

Art design motifs on a Classical Urn. Heritage Editions reproduction print from an 18th century classical engraving by Pergolesi.

Reproduction from a superb finely-etched copperplate with contemporary colour in gouache, engraved and published in London circa 1784 by Italian engraver Michelangelo Pergolesi for his “Designs for Various Ornaments” which featured the artistic utilization of various antiquities in his designs for ornamentation of wall panels, ceilings, furniture decoration, cornices, friezes, urns and complete wall schemes. Pergolesi based most of his work on earlier Renaissance Masters. His publication of his designs greatly influenced the decorative arts of his day. When he was 60, Pergolesi was one of a group of Italian artists and painters who moved from Rome to London under the auspices of James Adam, and worked as one of Robert Adam’s principal decorative artists.
