‘Two Male Figures’ Engraving c1800
This exquisite engraving depicts two male nudes. One reclining and the other assisting him. Both created in Romanesque style that was popular in the 1800s. Found amongst pages that came from a Palazzo Corsini auction with Sotheby's, this is a rare and quirky print that is simple yet decorative in design. Colour and a contemporary feel is added to it by the teal frame I have picked for it. The simple framing and white background allows this work to fit in anywhere.
