Unknown

US$572

About

This remarkably fine late 17th Century engraving by painter and engraver Pietro Aquila (1650-1692) captures the ravishing qualities of the original c.1630 painting entitled 'The Rape of the Sabines' by Pietro da Cortona (1596-1669), currently hanging in the Palazzo dei Conservatori in Rome. Aquila made numerous copies of the most remarkable paintings by his contemporaries, and this large engraving demonstrates his proficiency for detail and figurative form. Inscribed below the image 'Petrus Beretinus Cortonensis pinxit in aedibus dominorum de Sacchettis Pet. Aq. del. e f.', with a further dedication to Balthasar Canizzares e Ventimiglia. Published by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. Signed in plate. On laid.
