Remains of an Ionic Temple at Aphrodisias

Artist: Giovanni Battista Borra

Date: ca. 1750

Giovanni Battista Borra (1713 - 1770) was an Italian architect, engineer and architectural draughtsman. A native of Piedmont in Italy his reputation was founded on his transformation of the baroque Castle di Racconigi into a neo classical summer residence between 1756-1760. The owner of the castle Prince Luigi Vittorio of Savoy Carigano was avant garde in his taste and preferred this to the more common baroque French rococo styles of the Savoy region. He won the commission despite having done virtually no other work in Italy because of the excellent reputation he had built up in Britain – he worked as an architectural draftsman for British scholars and archaeologists abroad, including the important archaeological expedition to the Levant with Robert Wood in 1750-51. These works and their images led to motifs from Baalbek and Palmyra becoming fashionable for ceiling and interior decorations in England and Italy.

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
