About the artwork

Circle of Michelangelo Maestri (circa 1779-1812):
Roman women in antique dress against a black background, within a painted passe-partout. Set of eight gouaches on strengthened paper. Maestri and his followers took the frescoes from Rome, Pompeii or Herculaneum as inspiration for their work. These gouaches were popular with travelers on their Grand Tour in Rome. The images in this series can be traced back to murals paintimngs found in the Pyramid of Cestius and the Terme di Constantino.
