View Of Genoa
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 and are produced only to order. It takes about 7 days for black and white production and about 14 days for color production.
*Each canvas is available, with a price increase, even with watercolor coloring, always made by hand by our craftsmen.
