Common Places. British landscape painters in Rome between the XVIII and XIX century in the graphic works at the Museo di Roma

Typologie: Art Moderne

A tribute to Rome on its 2766th Birthday. The exhibition, which is a continuation of a project started in 2012 with a show dedicated  to the French landscape painters, presents a selection of about seventy worksfrom the large collection of prints and drawings at the Museum of Rome. On display some stunning views of the city, poignant images of the Roman countryside that captured the imagination of these painters who, in order to fix in the memory the charm of the images, often undergoing a strenuous and sometimes dangerous trips, in areas infected by malaria and robbers.

These watercolors and engravings - which can be admired in the exhibition halls on the ground floor of Palazzo Braschi - were selected from two of the most interesting of the museum funds: the collection of Baron Basile de Lemmermann and that of Anna Laetitia Pecci Blunt, two educated and passionate collectors who they decided to donate them to the museum.
On display the works by Richard Cooper, who is considered a Scottish grand master of aquatint and lived in Italy since 1770. Also on display the lithographs by Edward Lear, dedicated to the areas around Rome and published in London in 1841, the artworks by Arthur John Strutt, particularly interested in picturesque aspects of the Roman countryside, and by John Ruskin who found Rome to be dirty and in a state of neglect, though he visited Italy many times.
A fascinating artistic selection for an exhibition that aims to reveal the many faces of the city, told through the eyes of many foreign artists. A narrative that once again confirms the love reserved for Rome by so many artists.
