Luigi Rossini is a famous 19th century Italian print maker known for his incredible etchings of ancient Roman architecture. Born in 1790 in Ravenna he studied at the Academy of Bologna graduating in 1813 and fell in love with his predecessor Giovanni Battista Piranesi. Rossini made a name for himself in 1825 after publishing a portfolio of 101 large plate of Roman antiquities which blew away the public and continues too today. 

This fine original etching depicts the ruins of the Temple of Concord build in the 4th century BC dedicated to the Roman goddess Concordia at the western end of the Roman Forum. The detail and overall quality of Rossini's prints is breathtaking with this example being no different. Created in 1823 (date low right in plate) was created as part of the 101 print portfolio released in 1825. The condition is astounding with no signs of damage, abuse or over exposure to direct sunlight. The frame this rests in does show some minor cosmetic blemishes but is very minimal making this ready to be hung and enjoyed in ones home or collection.
