Description
This is a hand colored aquatint by James A. Merigot and was published by Merigot and Robert Edwards (1768-1827) in London in 1798 as a portfolio titled: "A SELECT COLLECTION OF VIEWS AND RUINS IN ROME AND ITS VICINITY; EXECUTED FROM DRAWINGS MADE UPON THE SPOT IN THE YEAR 1791" The portfolio consisted of 59 plates, printed on J. Whatman paper. Each image has a typeset title and the publication line, which in this case, reads: "London, Published March 1, 1796 by J. Merigot No 28, Haymarket." This is a view of one of the honorific arch on the Via Sacra, south east of the Roman Forum, constructed in 82 AD to commemorate Titus’ victories. It was the inspiration for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
