An antique canvas able to give character to the most refined environments, a collector's item able to satisfy the most demanding palates: the perspective views of the German publishers Probst - Georg Balthasar before and then his son Johann Friedrich - reach the highest peaks of the eighteenth century production, and the quality of their work is wonderfully demonstrated by this painting dedicated to the city of Pistoia. The canvas is dominated by the "Basilica of the Madonna dell'Umiltà", with the enormous dome by Vasari, as well as the Duomo with its tall bell tower soaring above the other buildings, stretching towards the sky in the exact center of the canvas.
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 30 days for the production.
