Vue du temple de Vesta et de la fortune virile


Vue du temple de Vesta et de la fortune virile

(Naples) circa. 1825, 13x19cm, gouache 6,8x11,5cm, une feuille sous marie-louise.

Original gummed print, dating from the first quarter of the 19th century.
This print, taken from the Saint-Jean district in Geneva on the right bank of the Rhone, was later added to a set of Italian landscapes in an amicorum album among engravings, lithographs, drawings, and wash.
Executed in the first quarter of the 19th century, these prints summarize the stages of the "Grand Tour" of Italy and its surroundings, the obligatory journey of the post-Napoleonic nobility who came to Italy or Switzerland to make an artistic and bucolic pilgrimage to the great Renaissance works, urban panoramas and delightful mountain lakes. The European aristocracy was therefore fond of these prints of good graphic quality enhanced by brilliant colors, which brought together the high places of architecture and the Italian and Swiss countryside.
