Description

The first of the one-of-a-kind entries in the sale is an incredible photorealistic Italian micromosaic artwork depicting the Roman Forum and its surrounding landscape. Composed of thousands of pieces of hand-set miniature pieces of glass, the circa-1870s artwork was executed in the manner of Vatican master mosaicist Cesare Roccheggiani. Artworks of this type were created for noblemen and wealthy aristocrats visiting Rome during a Grand Tour of Europe. Each commissioned work was painstakingly crafted, piece by piece, and reflected the artistís own impression of the subject. Measures 11 3/4" x 14 1/4". Estimate $15,000 - $25,000
