Gallery Talk | Friday, April 9, 5:00pm
Architecture Building, Kibel Gallery
Gallery Talk held in conjunction with Schumacher Symposium
This exhibit features reproductions of engravings and original photographs documenting buildings of Renaissance and Baroque Rome as depicted by Paul Marie Letarouilly in his three-volume Édifices de Rome Moderne.
Curator Kevin Hinders conducted the research leading to this exhibit from 2003 to 2006. An exhibition of 100 black-and-white 17" x 22" framed plates and four oversized color images has been created to tour the United States. The exhibition also includes a late 19th/early 20th Century "elephant edition" of Letarouilly's three-volume set.
The images can be grouped in many ways, but perhaps the easiest and most coherent is by type: Palaces, Villas, Churches, Fountains & Piazzas.
