Description: One of the finest 19th Century Italian views, drawn and engraved by the best artist of the time. From the orginal description: Benevento stands on a gentle elevation, at the foot of a bold ridge of hills. Its northern walls are bathed by the Cabre, a river still enjoying its ancient name. A lofty bridge crosses the stream; and'near this structure two heaps of stones are pointed out as the memorial of the burial place of Count Manfred of Suabia. This nobleman long maintained a struggle against Charles of Anjou and the pope; but at length, in January 1266, he suffered a signal defeat near Benevento, and rushing into the midst of his enemies, fell amongst a heap of slain. Charles, in a letter to the Roman pontiff, represented that the body of Manfred had received honourable sepulture; but this honourable interment consisted merely in throwing the corpse into a ditch, and permitting every soldier in the army to cast a stone upon it. The citadel of Benevento, a structure of moderate but picturesque proportions, erected in 1323, is situated outside the city gates. The cathedral is a large fabric in the Saracenic style, but composed of ancient materials, the remains of imperial times. It is supported within by fifty columns of white marble, forming on each side a double aisle. Relics of Roman greatness may be traced at Benevento, in the remains of an amphitheatre and the ancient walls of the city, and in minor details of architectural decoration. The chief antiquity, however, is the triumphal arch of Trajan, forming one of the gates of the city. It consists of a single arch, and is of Parian marble, and entire, with the exception of a part of the cornice. Both sides are adorned with four Corinthian pillars raised on high pedestals. The frieze, panels, and indeed every part within and without the arch, are covered with rich sculptures, allusive to the achievements of the emperor. This triumphal arch is considered the most perfect thing of the kind existing; it appears, however, to be wanting in simplicity, the decorations being so crowded as to leave no repose for the eye, and no plane surface to give relief to the sculptures. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

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.
