Rome Temple of Saturn, Temple of Concordia. Illustration.

Roman Forum Temple of Concordia or Temple of Saturn. (Roman goddess of harmony, who represented the resolution of conflicts) & (God of Agriculture and Harvest). (Whichever you prefer..) This print is finely hand-tinted with watercolour.

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.
