Product description

Meyland means Milan in German. Certainly of German this canvas has not only the title: in fact it was printed by Probst editor, owner in the eighteenth century of a lively printing house in Augsburg, in Bavaria, from which came out of the wonderful perspective views of almost all the major European cities.

At the time of this perspective view, Milan was firmly in the hands of the Habsburgs, whose dominion had been confirmed with the Utrecht and Rastatt agreements. The German style, in fact, can be seen in this view. As certainly the most attentive observers have noticed, this reproduction, to faithfully reproduce the eighteenth-century original, is made up of four distinct sheets of cotton, then mounted on canvas. The same editors of the time used this technique habitually, to facilitate the transport and conservation of the canvases. But that's not all: as well as the original, this perspective view of Milan was also printed with a manual press, starting from copper matrices engraved by real artists in the sector.

Techniques from the 18th century have been used to reproduce this work. Finely engraved plates and an antique manual press were used giving this work its fundamental characteristic that ties it to the past: Engraving. The paper used for engraving is 100% cotton and  it undergoes a delicate and important  aging process using only natural substances.

The watercoloring is done by expert  artists in their field who give the work subtle hues and a harmonious composition of colors resulting in a pleasant scenic or stage effect.

For this reason, due to their completely handmade nature, it may take more than 10 days for the product to be produced
