Regular price €500,00

Tax included.

Painting representing a view of the Roman ruins.

On the paper on the back of the painting there is an inscription in French: les ruines de Septizonium avec vue a droite sur San Gregorio Magno (San Gregoro al Celio). ROME 1937

Septizonium was a multi-storey building, similar to a nymphaeum, built in 203 by Septimius Severus and destroyed at the end of the 16th century, the columns and other material was then reused for many buildings in Rome. To be exact, the painting depicts a building with arches from the dermis of the Domus Severiana on the Palatine Hill in Rome.

The painting was done on canvas, pasted on the tablet.

At the bottom right there is a hardly legible signature.

In excellent condition.
The contrast between the warm color of the brick and the blue of the sky is of great effect. Experimental and daring painting technique.
