Details

From a series of views of Rome by Jean Barbault titled ‘Les plus beaux monuments de Rome ancienne’ published in Rome by Bouchard in 1761. Sant' Eustachio is a titular church in Rome. Founded in the 8th century, and it was almost completely rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries. The French artist Jean Barbault, after winning a scholarship at the Académie des Beaux-Arts, moved to Rome where he was to remain until his death. His activity as an etcher was much inspired by the Imperialistic current in Rome at the time, and the influence of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) is particularly strong in his work. Both these artists also shared the same publisher - Jean Bouchard (18th century), one of the most important publisher of prints of his time.
