(Rome 1767 – 1831)
View of the Roman Forum

Signed lower left: Filippo Giuntotardi a Roma
Watercolor on paper, cm. 52,5 x 76,5

This watercolor proposes a very famous and appreciated subject during the Settecento and Ottocento: the ruins of the classical Roman antiquity. In the past, ruins charm aroused several suggestions and interpretations. In Giuntotardi’s works it is highly visible how in that artistic period the subject success coincides with the success of a taste for picturesque and a completely new landscape idea, where ancient ruins enchantment lies in the charm of their forms now worn-out, in dialectical contrast with Modern Age architectural works the artist puts in the watercolor background. Moreover, as a sign of that time passing, he adds characters with the aim of pointing out how life really goes on passing in these places of past. Poetic suggestions ancient monuments inspired in classical landscapes old masters leave a trace also in this drawing, where landscape timeless beauty is mostly expressed by idillic tones and sure matchings of light and color.
