Cappella Sistina in vaticano Un giorno di Festa
Parigi 1870 - "Veduta tratta dalla monumentale opera di Felix Benoist "Rome dans sa grandeur. Vues, monument ancient ed modernes " stampata in 3 volumi, da Henri Charpentier, nel 1870. I volumi monografici dedicati rispettivamente a 1. Roma antica 2. Roma cristiana 3. Roma moderna, sono illustrati complessivamente da 100 litografie realizzate da Felix e il fratello Philippe Benoist. L’opera rappresenta il capolavoro dell’artista francese, dove ogni veduta è realizzata in litografia tinta, processo ottenuto usando un diverso numero di pietre. Il risultato è un’opera di grande effetto, tanto da porre il Benoist tra la schiera dei più grandi artisti di interni e vedute del suo tempo. Litografia tinta, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "View taken from "Rome dans sa grandeur. Vues, monument ancient ed modernes " by F. Benoist, 3 volumes printed by H. in 1870 The volumes respectively dedicated to 1. Ancient Rome, 2. Christian Rome 3. Modern Rome, are llustrated by 100 lithographs by Felix and his brother Philippe Benoist. The work represents one of the artist's finest undertakings as each lithograph was printed in subtle colours using a number of tint stones. Finally, the figures and some of the foreground obects were then hand-coloured by commissioned artists. The end result produced by these large and elaborate lithographs, thus more than justifies Benoist's position as one of the greatest artists of interior views and monumental scenes of his time. Lithograph, finely hand colored, in excellent condition." Dimensioni 360 255mm
