Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Views of Ancient Greece as seen in the mid 18th century. Plates from Julien David LeRoy’s 1770 work “Monuments de la Grèce, considérées du côté de l’histoire et l’architecture”. Printed in 1770 in Paris by Louis-François Delatour. Collections of the BnF Gallica, the digital version of the Bibliothèque nationale de France but the Royal Academy in London has it too. The captioning here is an English translation of the original French and is taken from the Royal Academy website.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
