Here is the Genoa of the eighteenth century, a proud, rich, and deeply laborious state. To dominate Genoa, as you can see in this seductive perspective view, there is the famous Lanterna.
What we offer in this page is a reproduction of a rare copper engraving dating back to the mid-eighteenth century. The drawing is a work of Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776), edited by Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801), heir of Jeremias Wolff. The detailed drawing is accompanied by two legends on the lower floor, one in German and the other in Italian. To honor this work, the reproduction was made by following the same technique used by Probst
The printing machine is therefore an old manual press, on which copper plates have been mounted engraved by real masters, to give connoisseurs the typical 'tactile' sensation. The 4 sheets mounted on canvas - as well as the original eighteenth century - are 100% cotton, and have been wisely aged with special vegetable substances. It is therefore an artistic and artisan product of the highest level, a true collector's item able to give character to the most elegant environments.
Our canvases are printed with a hand-press. For this reason, due to their completely handmade nature, it may take more than 30 days for the product to be produced. Each canvas is also available with watercolor coloring by hand.
