This is one of Agostino Veneziano’s greatest achievements and probably the single finest High Renaissance print of ornament. It offers a lyrical interpretation of the inhabited acanthus that is carved on the exterior of the Ara Pacis, the monumental altar of imperial peace built for Augustus in 13-9 B.C. and rediscovered in the early 16th century. This impression is one of the earliest and perhaps the most subtle in its exceptional clarity and silvery tonality.
