Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Hand colored etchings from Marco Carloni’s 1776 work “Vestigia delle terme di Tito e loro interne pitture.” All of these drawn by Francesco Smugliewicz and Vincenzo Brenna, and engraved by Marco Carloni. There are a couple of volumes with the etchings in black and white. These were hand colored later, for a large folio edition. Various sources.
