Galeria dipinta nel palazzo del prencipe Panfilio da Pietro Berretini da Cortona intagliata de Carlo Cesio (A set of sixteen etchings after Pietro da Cortona's ceiling of the Galleria, Palazzo Pamphili, Piazza Navona, Rome)
Rome: Dominico de Rossi, Jo. Jacobi (Jo. Jacobi de Rubeis), circa 1690. Oblong folio. 45.5 x 69 cm. (17.75 x 27.25 inches) page size. Suite of 16 numbered engravings. Housed in a custom portfolio with painted boards, leather spine, large embossed leather label, leather ties and leather corners by the celebrated Russian-American binder Alexandr (Sasha) Mosalov. OCLC Number: 27358448 Pietro da Cortona (1 November 1596/7 - 16 May 1669) was born Pietro Berrettini, but is primarily known by the name of his native town of Cortona in Tuscany. Carlo Cesio or Carlo Cesi (1622-1682) was a painter and engraver of the Roman school. Cesio was born at Androdoco, in the Roman States, in 1622. The ceiling of the Galleria Pamphilj was painted by Pietro da Cortona with the Legend of Aeneas in 1651-54. After the mid-seventeenth century it became the new pattern for palace galleries, not only in Italy but also in Paris, where in 1704-07 a gallery was appended to the Palais Royal and painted with the same subject matter by Antoine Coypel. The form and iconography of the Galleria Pamphilj continued to be major influences well into the eighteenth century - even on the work of artists with no direct contacts with Rome, e.g. on Lorenzo de' Ferrari in Genoa. Some foxing.
