Description of the subject depicted in the print: Pius IV ordered Pirro Ligorio to build the celebrated Villa Pia in the Belvedere Gardens; it was his masterpiece, and is the most perfect imitation of the dwellings of ancient Rome. All the resources of art were exhausted in order to make the Villa a delightful residence. It was surrounded by groves of evergreens, in which were statues, vases, and flowerbeds rising tier above tier, the flowers being constantly kept fresh by spray from ornamental fountains. Marble basins were to be seen, and covered galleries adorned with stucco and paintings; two flights of stairs led to sheltered terraces, where graceful porticoes came in view, and a courtyard paved with mosaic. Stucco, columns, bas-reliefs, paintings by Zuccheri. Baroccio, and Santi di Tito abounded; while from a gallery at the top of the edifice there was a view which commanded the Vatican Garden's, Rome, the Tiber, and the great plain which stretches from the hills of Tibur to the sea. This charming palace was characteristic of Pius IV. He loved art, repose, and a quiet life; he combined irreproachable morals and true piety with an affability which Paul IV did not possess; his great desire to be beloved made him prefer a simple life to etiquette. He walked about Rome unceremoniously; his conversation was always earnest and gentle; and, if the complicated details of business were repugnant to him, it was only because his natural openness of character found difficulty in grasping worldly interests.

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving


This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
