Description: Architectural print. Uncolored copper plate engraving. Image measures 12.5" x 8 7/8".

Comments: Engraving of architectural details, designed by the Venetian Andreas Palladio (1508-1580), whose architecture is characterized by its symmetry and balance, influenced by the classical design of Ancient Greece and Rome. Giacomo Leoni (1686-1746) was also an architect from Venice, though he worked for most of his life in England. Greatly inspired by Palladio's neo-classical restraint, Leoni sought to incorporate this simplicity of design with the prevailing Baroque trends of ornamentation. Leoni republished Palladio's "I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura" in English (circa 1715) which helped to popularize Palladio's style abroad. This particular print comes from the later French edition of this popular publication. Minor aging along edges, scattered foxing and staining. Please visit our gallery for more Leoni prints.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
