Extremely fine and overpainted print in the style of the wall decorations in the pallazzi at Pompeii. The rich, opaque colours are achieved by mixing gouache with the artist's paints. The fragmented walls simulate the crumbled, post earthquake masonry.
This is a superb example of its kind. Published Rome, circa 1820.
