Prospetto Generale.

(Europe - Italy - Venice- Venezia)

Issued c.1830-40, Europe.

Beautiful panoramic birds-eye view of this Italian city.

Beautiful near miniature antique printed (likely engraved) image with wonderful early hand color heightened with gum arabic. A gem of a view, very pleasing visually, utterly superior visual quality almost resembling an original work of art. Atmospheric sense of weather is well captured, a pleasing subtle ambiance of light and shadow across the scene and in the distant sky.

Paper and image remains clean and well preserved with a fine patina and visual appeal.

 

Sheet measures c. 5 3/8"H x 7 3/4"W.
