We present this beautiful pair of watercolors signed Onorato Carlandi (1848-1939) at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, against the backdrop of the Roman forums.
The first watercolor illustrates various scenes of genre: two apprentice painters whose master is in the lower right corner, three friends who walk and admire the bow, a mother with her son and the guardian, left a girl accompanied by a caregiver who comes to an appointment with a boy, two friends walking under the monument.
All these scenes frame the real protagonist: the Arch of Constantine: the real protagonist of this painting, against a backdrop of the impressive Palatine Hill, master of all attentions.
The second watercolor plunges us into the heart of the Roman forums: at the foot of the temple of Venus, we can see in the background, on the right, the main arch of the previous painting. Here too, we are witnessing different scenes of the genre: the shepherd with his flock of sheep on the left, two men waiting to greet in the distance two girls who go to their appointments accompanied by their caregiver, a couple talking to a man who loads his pack donkey and a boy sitting admiring his surroundings.
Also in this painting the protagonist is not the diverse people but the ancient Roman remains, the landscape and especially the background, revealing the Colosseum in the distance.
Both watercolors are on sale with two beautiful walnut frames.
In conclusion: two paintings that make you travel back in time, in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the eternal city, Urbe: Rome.
