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.
